We consider the possibility that dark matter (DM) only interacts with the Standard Model leptons, but not quarks at tree-level, and analyze the future lepton collider prospects of such leptophilic DM in the mono-photon and mono-Z (both leptonic and hadronic) channels. Adopting a model-independent effective field theory framework, we consider all possible dimension-6 operators of scalar-pseudoscalar (S-P), vector-axialvector (V-A) and tensor-axialtensor (T-AT) types for a fermionic DM and derive…

Leptophilic Dark Matter at Linear Colliders
We discuss model-independent collider constraints on the effective couplings of leptophilic dark matter (LDM), considering its production at a future electron-positron linear collider, with both


Searches for dark matter at the LHC: A multivariate analysis in the mono-Z channel
We study dark matter (DM) production in the mono-Z channel at the 13 TeV LHC both in an effective field theory framework as well as in simplified models with vector mediators, using a multivariate
Dark matter search at a linear collider: effective operator approach
A bstractExperiments at electron-positron colliders can search for dark matter particle pair-production in association with a photon. We estimate the sensitivity of this search at the proposed
Dark matter searches in the mono- Z channel at high energy e + e − colliders
We explore the mono-Z signature for dark matter searches at future high energy e(+)e(-) colliders. In the context of effective field theory, we consider two kinds of contact operators describing dark
Searching for Dark Matter at the LHC with a Mono-Z
We investigate a mono-Z process as a potential dark matter search strategy at the LHC. In this channel a single Z boson recoils against missing transverse momentum, attributed to dark matter
Two-photon exchange in leptophilic dark matter scenarios
Abstract In leptophilic scenarios, dark matter interactions with nuclei, relevant for direct detection experiments and for the capture by celestial objects, could only occur via loop-induced
WIMP dark matter at the International Linear Collider
In this study, the sensitivity of future lepton colliders to weakly interacting massive particles (WIMP) dark matter is evaluated assuming WIMP pair production accompanied by a photon from initial
Leptophilic fermion WIMP: Role of future lepton colliders
The leptophilic weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) is realized in a minimal renormalizable model scenario where scalar mediators with lepton number establishes the WIMP interaction with the
Search for dark matter, extra dimensions, and unparticles in monojet events in proton–proton collisions at s=8 TeV
Results are presented from a search for particle dark matter (DM), extra dimensions, and unparticles using events containing a jet and an imbalance in transverse momentum. The data were collected by
Leptophilic dark matter with Z ' interactions
We consider a scenario where dark matter (DM) interacts exclusively with Standard Model (SM) leptons at tree level. Due to the absence of tree-level couplings to quarks, the constraints on
Model-independent astrophysical constraints on leptophilic Dark Matter in the framework of Tsallis statistics
We derive model-independent astrophysical constraints on leptophilic dark matter (DM), considering its thermal production in a supernova core and taking into account core temperature fluctuations
