In the past few years, the interest to collider searches for direct dark matter (DM) production has been growing exponentially. A variety of "Mono-X" signatures have been considered, where X stands for a probe particle recoiling against DM particles, which allows for the event to be triggerable. So far, the analysis of these signatures has been largely carried out in the framework of effective field theory (EFT), which allows for a comparison of the collider searches with searches in direct…

QCD and High Energy Interactions: Moriond 2015 Theory Summary
I will summarise the new theory developments that emerged during the 2015 QCD Moriond conference. I will give my perspective on some of the topics and emphasise what I consider most relevant.


Mono-everything: Combined limits on dark matter production at colliders from multiple final states
Searches for dark matter production at particle colliders are complementary to direct-detection and indirect-detection experiments and especially powerful for small masses, mχ<100  GeV. An important
Simplified Models for Dark Matter and Missing Energy Searches at the LHC
The study of collision events with missing energy as searches for the dark matter (DM) component of the Universe are an essential part of the extensive program looking for new physics at the LHC.
The Tevatron at the frontier of dark matter direct detection
Direct detection of dark matter (DM) requires an interaction of dark matter particles with nucleons. The same interaction can lead to dark matter pair production at a hadron collider, and with the
Missing Energy Signatures of Dark Matter at the LHC
We use ATLAS and CMS searches in the mono-jet + missing energy and mono-photon + missing energy final state to set limits on the couplings of dark matter to quarks and gluons. Working in an effective
Maverick dark matter at colliders
Assuming that dark matter is a weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) species X produced in the early Universe as a cold thermal relic, we study the collider signal of pp or $ p\bar{p}
Search for dark matter, extra dimensions, and unparticles in monojet events in proton–proton collisions at $$\sqrt{s} = 8$$s=8$$\,{\mathrm{TeV}}\,$$TeV
Results are presented from a search for particle dark matter (DM), extra dimensions, and unparticles using events containing a jet and an imbalance in transverse momentum. The data were collected by
First results from the LUX dark matter experiment at the Sanford underground research facility.
The first WIMP search data set is reported, taken during the period from April to August 2013, presenting the analysis of 85.3 live days of data, finding that the LUX data are in disagreement with low-mass W IMP signal interpretations of the results from several recent direct detection experiments.
Search for new phenomena in final states with an energetic jet and large missing transverse momentum in pp collisions at $$\sqrt{s}=8~$$s=8TeV with the ATLAS detector
Results of a search for new phenomena in final states with an energetic jet and large missing transverse momentum are reported. The search uses 20.3 fb$${}^{-1}$$-1 of $$\sqrt{s}=8$$s=8 TeV data
