Supersymmetric particles represent the best motivated candidatesto fill the Dark Matter gap, and are actively hunted by a numberof competing experiments. Discriminating experiments are testingfor the first time SUSY models compatible with accelerator constraints.These experiments contradict the 60 GeV WIMP candidate reported by the DAMA experiment.The sensitivities of direct and indirect detection techniques forboth present experiments and future projects are compared.

Cold dark matter and the LHC
The recent determination of the dark matter density in the universe by the WMAP satellite has brought new attention to the interplay of results from particle physics experiments at accelerators and
Dark matter: Past, present, and future
The words “dark matter” are a shorthand for an enormous range of evidence indicating (a) that various astronomical mass-to-light (M/L) ratios are larger than can be accounted for by visible stars and
