A bstractStudies of dark matter lie at the interface of collider physics, astrophysics and cosmology. Constraining models featuring dark matter candidates entails the capability to provide accurate predictions for large sets of observables and compare them to a wide spectrum of data. We present a framework which, starting from a model Lagrangian, allows one to consistently and systematically make predictions, as well as to confront those predictions with a multitude of experimental results.

Studies of dark matter models lie at the interface of astrophysics, cosmology, nuclear physics and collider physics. Constraining such models entails the capability to compare their predictions to a
Top-philic dark matter within and beyond the WIMP paradigm
We present a comprehensive analysis of top-philic Majorana dark matter that interacts via a colored t-channel mediator. Despite the simplicity of the model -- introducing three parameters only -- it
Cornering pseudoscalar-mediated dark matter with the LHC and cosmology
A bstractModels in which dark matter particles communicate with the visible sector through a pseudoscalar mediator are well-motivated both from a theoretical and from a phenomenological standpoint.
Top-philic vectorlike portal to scalar dark matter
We investigate the phenomenology of scalar singlet dark matter candidates that couple dominantly to the Standard Model via a Yukawa interaction with the top quark and a colored vector-like fermion.
Simplified dark matter models with two Higgs doublets: I. Pseudoscalar mediators
A bstractWe study a new class of renormalisable simplified models for dark matter searches at the LHC that are based on two Higgs doublet models with an additional pseudoscalar mediator. In contrast
Simplified dark matter models with a spin-2 mediator at the LHC
We consider simplified dark matter models where a dark matter candidate couples to the standard model (SM) particles via an s-channel spin-2 mediator, and study constraints on the model parameter
Phenomenological analysis of multi-pseudoscalar mediated dark matter models
Non-minimal simplified extensions of the Standard Model have gained considerable currency in the context of dark matter searches at the LHC, since they predict enhanced mono-Higgs and mono-W/Z
Revisiting simplified dark matter models in terms of AMS-02 and Fermi-LAT
A bstractWe perform an analysis of the simplified dark matter models in the light of cosmic ray observables by AMS-02 and Fermi-LAT. We assume fermion, scalar or vector dark matter particle with a
LHCDarkMatterWorking Group: Next-generation spin-0 darkmatter models
Dark matter (DM) simplified models are by now commonly used by the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations to interpret searches for missing transverse energy (Emiss T ). The coherent use of these models


Constraining Dark Sectors at Colliders: Beyond the Effective Theory Approach
We outline and investigate a set of benchmark simplified models with the aim of providing a minimal simple framework for an interpretation of the existing and forthcoming searches of dark matter
Constraints on dark matter from colliders
We show that colliders can impose strong constraints on models of dark matter, in particular, when the dark matter is light. We analyze models where the dark matter is a fermion or scalar interacting
Scalar Simplified Models for Dark Matter
We introduce a set of minimal simplified models for dark matter interactions with the Standard Model, connecting the two sectors via either a scalar or pseudoscalar particle. These models have a
Direct detection of dark matter with MadDM v.2.0
Abstract We present MadDM v.2.0, a numerical tool for dark matter physics in a generic model. This version is the next step towards the development of a fully automated framework for dark matter
S-channel dark matter simplified models and unitarity
The ultraviolet structure of s-channel mediator dark matter simplified models at hadron colliders is considered. In terms of commonly studied s-channel mediator simplified models it is argued that at
Collide and conquer: constraints on simplified dark matter models using mono-X collider searches
A bstractThe use of simplified models as a tool for interpreting dark matter collider searches has become increasingly prevalent, and while early Run II results are beginning to appear, we look to
Searches for dark matter signals in simplified models at future hadron colliders
We study the prospect of dark matter (DM) searches in the monojet channel at future pp colliders with center-of-mass energies of 33, 50, and 100 TeV. We consider a class of simplified models in which
Connecting dark matter UV complete models to direct detection rates via effective field theory
A bstractDirect searches for WIMPs are sensitive to physics well below the weak scale. In the absence of light mediators, it is fruitful to apply an Effective Field Theory (EFT) approach accounting
Cosmological constraints on Dark Matter models for collider searches
Searches for Dark Matter at the LHC are commonly described in terms of simplied models with scalar, pseudo-scalar, vector and axial-vector mediators. In this work we explore the constraints imposed
Probing dark matter couplings to top and bottom quarks at the LHC
Monojet searches are a powerful way to place model-independent constraints on effective operators coupling dark matter to the standard model. For operators generated by the exchange of a scalar
