It is shown that a decaying neutralino in a supergravity unified framework is a viable candidate for dark matter. Such a situation arises in the presence of a hidden sector with ultraweak couplings to the visible sector where the neutralino can decay into the hidden sector’s lightest supersymmetric particle (LSP) with a lifetime larger than the lifetime of the universe. We present a concrete model where the MSSM/SUGRA is extended to include a hidden sector comprised of U(1)X1×U(1)X2… 

A tower of hidden sectors: a general treatment and physics implications

An analysis of a tower of hidden sectors coupled to each other, with one of these hidden sectors coupled to the visible sector, is given and the implications of such couplings on physics in the

Analyzing the Hubble tension through hidden sector dynamics in the early universe

The recent analysis from the SH0ES collaboration has confirmed the existence of a Hubble tension between measurements at high redshift (z > 1000) and at low redshift (z < 1) at the 5σ level with the

A cosmologically consistent millicharged dark matter solution to the EDGES anomaly of possible string theory origin

Analysis of EDGES data shows an absorption signal of the redshifted 21-cm line of atomic hydrogen at z ∼ 17 which is stronger than expected from the standard ΛCDM model. The absorption signal

Self-interacting hidden sector dark matter, small scale galaxy structure anomalies, and a dark force

The short distance behavior of dark matter (DM) at galaxy scales exhibits several features not explained by the typical cold dark matter (CDM) with velocity-independent cross-section. We discuss a

Sensitivity of the Cherenkov Telescope Array for probing cosmology and fundamental physics with gamma-ray propagation

The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), the new-generation ground-based observatory for γ astronomy, provides unique capabilities to address significant open questions in astrophysics, cosmology, and

Expanding the parameter space of natural supersymmetry

SUSY/SUGRA models with naturalness defined via small μ are constrained due to experiment on the relic density and the experimental limits on the WIMP-proton cross-section and WIMP annihilation

Search for decaying heavy dark matter in an effective interaction framework: a comparison of γ-ray and radio observations

We investigate and compare the possibilities of observing decaying dark matter (DM) in γ-ray and radio telescopes. The special emphasis of the study is on a scalar heavy DM particle with mass in the

A long-lived stop with freeze-in and freeze-out dark matter in the hidden sector

In extended supersymmetric models with a hidden sector the lightest R -parity odd particle can reside in the hidden sector and act as dark matter. We consider the case when the hidden sector has

Effective Lagrangian for q̄q̃' i χ + j , q̄q̃ i χ 0 j interactions and fermionic decays of the squarks with CP phases

The one loop corrected effective Lagrangian for the quark-squark-chargino and quark-squark-neutralino interactions is computed. The effective Lagrangian takes into account the loop corrections arising
