Fermionic singlet dark matter in one-loop solutions to the $$R_K$$ anomaly: a systematic study

  title={Fermionic singlet dark matter in one-loop solutions to the \$\$R\_K\$\$ anomaly: a systematic study},
  author={Mathias Becker and Dominik Doring and Siddhartha Karmakar and Heinrich Pas},
  journal={The European Physical Journal C},
We study the dark matter phenomenology of Standard Model extensions addressing the reported anomaly in the $$R_K$$ R K observable at one-loop. The article covers the case of fermionic singlet DM coupling leptophilically, quarkphilically or amphiphilically to the SM. The setup utilizes a large coupling of the new particle content to the second lepton generation to explain the $$R_K$$ R K anomaly, which in return tends to diminish the dark matter relic density. Further, dark matter…

Neutrino masses, flavor anomalies and muon $\boldsymbol{g-2}$ from dark loops

The lepton sector of the Standard Model is at present haunted by several intrigu-ing anomalies, including an emerging pattern of deviations in b → s(cid:96)(cid:96) processes, with hints of lepton

Muon g-2 and B Anomalies from Dark Matter.

This type of model with heavy particles and chiral enhancement can evade the strong limits from direct searches but can be tested at present and future colliders and direct-detection searches.

Unitarity Bounds on Effective Field Theories at the LHC

Effective Field Theory (EFT) extensions of the Standard Model are tools to compute observables ( e.g. cross sections with partonic center-of-mass energy √ ŝ ) as a systematically improvable expansion



B anomalies and dark matter: a complex connection

We study an extension of the Standard Model that addresses the hints of lepton flavour universality violation observed in $$B\rightarrow K^{(*)} l^+l^-$$B→K(∗)l+l- decays at LHCb, while providing a

Search for annihilating dark matter in the Sun with 3 years of IceCube data

We present results from an analysis looking for dark matter annihilation in the Sun with the IceCube neutrino telescope. Gravitationally trapped dark matter in the Sun’s core can annihilate into

Internal bremsstrahlung signatures in light of direct dark matter searches

Although proposed long ago, the search for internal bremsstrahlung signatures has only recently been made possible by the excellent energy resolution of ground-based and satellite-borne gamma-ray

A small amount of mini-charged dark matter could cool the baryons in the early Universe

If a small fraction of the dark matter has a mini-charge, a million times smaller than the charge on the electron, and a mass in the range of 1–100 times the electron mass, then the data from the EDGES experiment can be explained while remaining consistent with all other observations.

Since 2013, the LHCb collaboration has reported on the measurement of several observables associated with b→s transitions, finding various deviations from their predicted values in the Standard

Fermi LAT Search for Internal Bremsstrahlung Signatures from Dark Matter Annihilation

A commonly encountered obstacle in indirect searches for galactic dark matter is how to disentangle possible signals from astrophysical backgrounds. Given that such signals are most likely
