We present a renormalization-group (RG) analysis of dark matter interactions with the standard model, where dark matter is allowed to be a component of an electroweak multiplet, and has a mass at or below the electroweak scale. We consider, in addition to the gauge interactions, the complete set of effective operators for dark matter interactions with the standard model above the weak scale, up to and including mass dimension six. We calculate the RG evolution of these operators from the high… 

Operators from flavored dark sectors running to low energy

We consider the effective field theory generated by a heavy mediator that connects Standard Model particles to a Dark Sector, considering explicitly the flavor structure of the operators. In

Renormalization effects on electric dipole moments in electroweakly interacting massive particle models

The extended models of the standard model with a single Majorana fermion could be realized as the low-energy effective theory of the well-motivated ultraviolet models. We study the electric dipole

Probing Bottom-flavored Scalar Dark Matters at Loop Level

In this paper we consider loop corrections to the spin-independent WIMP-nucleon scattering cross section in bottom-quark flavored scalar-type dark matter models. We focus on two scenarios: (a) a

Two-loop beta function for complex scalar electroweak multiplets

We present the general form of the renormalizable four-point interactions of a complex scalar field furnishing an irreducible representation of SU(2), and derive a set of algebraic identities that

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

Two-loop radiative seesaw, muon g − 2, and τ-lepton-flavor violation with DM constraints

Abstract The quartic scalar coupling λ5 term, which violates the lepton-number by two units in the Ma-model, is phenomenologically small when the model is applied to the lepton-flavor violation

Assessing the sensitivity of PINGU to effective dark matter-nucleon interactions

New constraints on dark matter effective theories from standard model loops.

It is found that electroweak interactions induce operator mixings such that operators that are naively velocity suppressed and spin dependent can actually contribute to spin-independent scattering.
