We consider the consequences of a neutral dark-matter particle with a nonzero electric and/or magnetic dipole moment. Theoretical constraints, as well as constraints from direct searches, precision tests of the standard model, the cosmic microwave background and matter power spectra, and cosmic gamma rays, are included. We find that a relatively light… CONTINUE READING
