Electroweak phase transition and gravitational waves in a two-component dark matter model

Abstract We investigate an extension of the Standard Model (SM) with two candidates for dark matter (DM). One of them is a real scalar field and the other is an Abelian gauge field. Except for these

Glueball Dark Matter revisited

We revisit the possibility that Dark Matter is composed of stable scalar glueballs of a confining dark SU(3) gauge theory coupled only to gravity. The relic abundance of dark glueballs is studied for

An Exceptional Dark Matter from Cayley–Dickson Algebras

In this article I propose a new criterion to individuate the origin and the properties of the dark matter particle sector. The emerging candidates come from a straightforward algebraic conjecture:

The extended minimal geometric deformation of SU(N) dark glueball condensates

The extended minimal geometric deformation (EMGD) procedure, in the holographic membrane paradigm, is employed to model stellar distributions that arise upon self-interacting scalar glueball dark

Decay of boson stars with application to glueballs and other real scalars

Massive real scalar particles, for instance glueballs from a posited hidden sector, are interesting dark matter candidates. If they possess repulsive self interactions that can oppose gravity, they

Exploring inert dark matter blind spots with gravitational wave signatures

Motivated by the absence of dark matter signals in direct detection experiments and the discovery of gravitational waves (GWs) at aLIGO, we discuss the possibility to explore a generic classes of

Glueball scattering cross section in lattice SU(2) Yang-Mills theory

We calculate the scattering cross section between $0^{++}$ glueballs of the SU(2) Yang-Mills theory on lattice using the indirect (HAL QCD) method. We employ the cluster-decomposition error reduction

TASI Lectures on Remnants from the String Landscape

Superstring theories are very promising theoretically, but the enormous landscape of string vacua and the (likely) very large underlying string scale imply that they may never be tested directly.

Hidden SU(N) glueball dark matter

We investigate the possibility that the dark matter candidate is from a pure non-Abelian gauge theory of the hidden sector, motivated in large part by its elegance and simplicity. The dark matter is

Strongly interacting dark matter: Self-interactions and keV lines

We consider a simple supersymmetric hidden sector: pure SU(N) gauge theory. Dark matter is made up of hidden glueballinos with mass m_X and hidden glueballs with mass near the confinement scale Λ.

Self-Interacting Dark Matter from a Non-Abelian Hidden Sector

There is strong evidence in favor of the idea that dark matter is self interacting, with the cross section-to-mass ratio σ/m∼1  cm^2/g∼1  barn/GeV. We show that viable models of dark matter with this

Gravitational Waves from a Dark Phase Transition.

The gravitational wave signal provides a unique test of the gravitational interactions of a dark sector, and the complementarity with conventional searches for new dark sectors is discussed, as well as symmetric and asymmetric composite dark matter scenarios.

Interaction between bosonic dark matter and stars

We provide a detailed analysis of how bosonic dark matter “condensates” interact with compact stars, extending significantly the results of a recent Letter [1]. We focus on bosonic fields with mass

A pure-glue hidden valley I. States and decays

It is possible that the standard model is coupled, through new massive charged or colored particles, to a hidden sector whose low energy dynamics is controlled by a pure Yang-Mills theory, with no

Boson stars: Gravitational equilibria of self-interacting scalar fields.

It is found that the maximum masses of such boson stars may be comparable to the Chandrasekhar mass for fermions of mass m/sub fermion/--lambda/sup -1/4/m/sub boson/.

Non-Abelian dark matter and dark radiation

An intriguing possibility for dark matter is considered: the dark matter is charged with respect to ''dark'' gluons of a new non-Abelian gauge theory. The gluons constitute self-interacting dark

Are there geon analogues in sourceless gauge-field theories?

It has recently been shown that there is no finite-energy non-singular solution to the sourceless gauge-field equations in four-dimensional Minkowski space that does not radiate energy. However, this
