A model for dark matter, naturalness and a complete gauge unification

- K. Kainulainen, K. Tuominen, Jussi Virkajarvi
- Physics
- 27 April 2015

We consider dark matter in a minimal extension of the Standard Model (SM) which breaks electroweak symmetry dynamically and leads to a complete unification of the SM and technicolor coupling… Expand

Weakly interacting dark matter from the minimal walking technicolor

- K. Kainulainen, K. Tuominen, Jussi Virkajarvi
- Physics
- 11 December 2009

We study a weakly interacting dark matter particle motivated by minimal walking technicolor theories. Our WIMP is a mixture of a sterile state and a state with the charges of a standard model fourth… Expand

First Order Electroweak Phase Transition from (Non)Conformal Extensions of the Standard Model

- Francesco Sannino, Jussi Virkajarvi
- Physics
- 21 May 2015

We analyse and compare the finite-temperature electroweak phase transition properties of classically (non)conformal extensions of the Standard Model. In the classically conformal scenarios the… Expand

Light magnetic dark matter in direct detection searches

- E. D. Nobile, C. Kouvaris, P. Panci, F. Sannino, Jussi Virkajarvi
- Physics
- 29 March 2012

We study a fermionic Dark Matter particle carrying magnetic dipole moment and analyze its impact on direct detection experiments. In particular we show that it can accommodate the DAMA, CoGeNT and… Expand

The WIMP of a Minimal Technicolor Theory

- K. Kainulainen, K. Tuominen, Jussi Virkajarvi
- Physics
- 20 December 2006

We consider the possibility that a massive fourth family neutrino, predicted by a recently proposed minimal technicolor theory, could be the source of the dark matter in the universe. The model has… Expand

Dark matter from unification

- K. Kainulainen, K. Tuominen, Jussi Virkajarvi
- Physics
- 5 July 2013

We consider a minimal extension of the Standard Model (SM), which leads to unification of the SM coupling constants, breaks electroweak symmetry dynamically by a new strongly coupled sector and leads… Expand

Constraints on Majorana dark matter from a fourth lepton family

- T. Hapola, M. Jarvinen, C. Kouvaris, P. Panci, Jussi Virkajarvi
- Physics
- 24 September 2013

We study the possibility of dark matter in the form of heavy neutrinos from a fourth lepton family with helicity suppressed couplings such that dark matter is produced thermally via annihilations in… Expand

Dark Matter Interference

- E. D. Nobile, C. Kouvaris, F. Sannino, Jussi Virkajarvi
- Physics
- 8 November 2011

We study different patterns of interference in WIMP-nuclei elastic scattering that can accommodate the DAMA and CoGeNT experiments via an isospin violating ratio fn/fp = -0.71. We study interference… Expand

Naturality, unification, and dark matter

- K. Kainulainen, K. Tuominen, Jussi Virkajarvi
- Physics
- 27 January 2010

We consider a model where electroweak symmetry breaking is driven by technicolor dynamics with minimal particle content required for walking coupling and saturation of global anomalies. Furthermore,… Expand
