We introduce CosmoBit, a module within the open-source GAMBIT software framework for exploring connections between cosmology and particle physics with joint global fits. CosmoBit provides a flexible framework for studying various scenarios beyond ΛCDM, such as models of inflation, modifications of the effective number of relativistic degrees of freedom, exotic energy injection from annihilating or decaying dark matter, and variations of the properties of elementary particles such as neutrino… Expand
Review on Dark Matter tools
This short review provides a short review of the most widespread public codes capable of computing dark matter observables and discusses what is the status of each numerical tool in terms of capturing the WIMP phenomenology and accounting for new trend dark sector models that might be weakly coupled to ordinary matter and/or be strongly self-interacting.

In this conference paper I introduce a selection of BSM tools and describe their most recent developments. I choose to focus on tools for the reinterpretation of LHC searches, tools that compute darkExpand
First direct neutrino-mass measurement with sub-eV sensitivity
We report the results of the second measurement campaign of the Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino (KATRIN) experiment. KATRIN probes the effective electron anti-neutrino mass, $m_{\nu}$, via aExpand
GAMBIT, the Global and Modular BSM Inference Tool
GUM, the GAMBIT Universal Model Machine, a tool created to auto-generate GAMBIT code for any BSM model from the most popular Lagrangian-level tools, FeynRules and SARAH is introduced. Expand
The GAMBIT Universal Model Machine: from Lagrangians to Likelihoods
We introduce the GAMBIT Universal Model Machine (GUM), a tool for automatically generating code for the global fitting software framework GAMBIT, based on Lagrangian-level inputs. GUM accepts modelsExpand
Thermal WIMPs and the Scale of New Physics: Global Fits of Dirac Dark Matter Effective Field Theories
We assess the status of a wide class of WIMP dark matter (DM) models in light of the latest experimental results using the global fitting framework GAMBIT. We perform a global analysis of effectiveExpand

Predicting cosmological observables with PyCosmo
This work first describes how the observables are implemented, then, the accuracy of the theoretical predictions are checked, and the agreement of $\textsf{PyCosmo}$ with the other codes is quantified, for a range of cosmological models. Expand
Equivalent Neutrinos, Light WIMPs, and the Chimera of Dark Radiation
According to conventional wisdom, in the standard model (SM) of particle physics and cosmology the ``effective number of neutrinos'' measured in the late Universe is ${N}_{\mathrm{eff}}=3$ (moreExpand
Natural inflation: Particle physics models, power-law spectra for large-scale structure, and constraints from the Cosmic Background Explorer.
We discuss the particle physics basis for models of natural inflation with pseudo Nambu-Goldstone bosons and study the consequences for large-scale structure of the nonscale-invariant densityExpand
Likelihood analysis of the pMSSM11 in light of LHC 13-TeV data
The mechanisms that operate in different regions of the pMSSM11 parameter space to bring the relic density of the lightest neutralino, $$tilde{\chi }^0_{1}$$χ~10, into the range indicated by cosmological data are identified. Expand
Likelihood analysis of the sub-GUT MSSM in light of LHC 13-TeV data
We describe a likelihood analysis using MasterCode of variants of the MSSM in which the soft supersymmetry-breaking parameters are assumed to have universal values at some scale $$M_\mathrm{in}$$MinExpand
A model-independent analysis of $b \to s \mu^{+} \mu^{-}$ transitions with GAMBIT's FlavBit
The search for flavour-changing neutral current effects in $B$-meson decays is a powerful probe of physics beyond the Standard Model. Deviations from SM behaviour are often quantified by extractingExpand
