We discuss the correlation between dark matter and Higgs decays in gauge theories where the dark matter is predicted from anomaly cancellation. In these theories, the Higgs responsible for the breaking of the gauge symmetry generates the mass for the dark matter candidate. We investigate the Higgs decays in the minimal gauge theory for Baryon number. After imposing the dark matter density and direct detection constraints, we find that the new Higgs can have a large branching ratio into two…

Baryogenesis via leptogenesis: Spontaneous B and L violation
In order to address the baryon asymmetry in the Universe one needs to understand the origin of baryon (B) and lepton (L) number violation. In this article, we discuss the mechanism of baryogenesis
Theory of Dirac Dark Matter: Higgs Decays and EDMs
We discuss a simple theory predicting the existence of a Dirac dark matter candidate from gauge anomaly cancellation. In this theory, the spontaneous breaking of local baryon number at the low scale

We investigate the possibility to test the simplest theory for spontaneous baryon number violation at the Large Hadron Collider. In this context the baryon number is a local gauge symmetry
Leptophobic dark matter and the baryon number violation scale
We discuss the possible connection between the scale for baryon number violation and the cosmological bound on the dark matter relic density. A simple gauge theory for baryon number which predicts
Baryonic Higgs at the LHC
A bstractWe investigate the possible collider signatures of a new Higgs in simple extensions of the Standard Model where baryon number is a local symmetry spontaneously broken at the low scale. We
Hunting the dark Higgs
A bstractWe discuss a novel signature of dark matter production at the LHC resulting from the emission of an additional Higgs boson in the dark sector. The presence of such a dark Higgs boson is
Anomaly-free dark matter models
We investigate the predictions of anomaly-free dark matter models for direct and indirect detection experiments. We focus on gauge theories where the existence of a fermionic dark matter candidate is
Electric dipole moments, new forces and dark matter
New sources of CP violation beyond the Standard Model are crucial to explain the baryon asymmetry in the Universe. We discuss the impact of new CP violating interactions in theories where a dark
Improved Limits for Higgs-Portal Dark Matter from LHC Searches.
The results show that the uncertainty of the Higgs-nucleon coupling has been vastly overestimated in the past, and highlight that state-of-the-art nuclear physics input is key to fully exploiting experimental searches.
Minimal theory for lepto-baryons
Abstract We investigate the simplest models where baryon and lepton numbers are defined as local symmetries spontaneously broken at the low scale and discuss the implications for cosmology. We define
Gauge theory for baryon and lepton numbers with leptoquarks.
New extensions of the standard model are found which predict the existence of fermions that carry both baryon and lepton numbers (i.e., leptoquarks) and the local baryonic and leptonic symmetries can be broken at a scale close to the electroweak scale.
Breaking local baryon and lepton number at the TeV scale
Simple models are proposed where the baryon and lepton number are gauged and spontaneously broken near the weak scale. The models use a fourth generation that is vector-like with respect to the
