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
Dark glueballs and their ultralight axions
Dark gauge sectors and axions are well-motivated in string theory. We demonstrate that if a confining gauge sector gives rise to dark glueballs that are a fraction of the dark matter, and the
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
Self-interacting dark matter
A new type of dark matter is considered. As with cold dark matter, when the dark matter is nonrelativistic, it does not couple to the electron-photon plasma, so its entropy per comoving volume is
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 from self-interacting dark matter
A bstractWe study the possibility that self-interacting bosonic dark matter forms star-like objects. We study both the case of attractive and repulsive self-interactions, and we focus particularly in
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
