Gravitino dark matter, together with thermal leptogenesis, implies an upper bound on the masses of superparticles. In the case of broken R-parity the constraints from primordial nucleosynthesis are naturally satisfied and decaying gravitinos lead to characteristic signatures in high energy cosmic rays. We analyse the implications for supergravity models with universal boundary conditions at the grand unification scale. Together with low-energy observables one obtains a window of superparticle…

R-parity violating right-handed neutrino in gravitino dark matter scenario

A decay of the gravitino dark matter is an attractive candidate to explain the current excesses of the PAMELA/ATIC cosmic-ray data. However, R-parity violations are required to be very tiny in

Antiproton limits on decaying gravitino dark matter

We derive 95 % CL lower limits on the lifetime of decaying dark matter in the channels Zν, Wℓ and hν using measurements of the cosmic-ray antiproton flux by the PAMELA experiment. Performing a scan

Leptogenesis and Dark Matter

We brie y review the work carried out in project C3 of the SFB 676. The main topics are Quantum Leptogenesis, the treatment of thermal leptogenesis with nonequilibrium eld theory, and gravitino dark

Gravitinos and hidden supersymmetry at the LHC

We investigate phenomenological consequences of locally supersymmetric extensions of the Standard Model consistent with primordial nucleosynthesis, leptogenesis and dark matter constraints. An

Gravitino dark matter in R-parity breaking vacua

We show that in the case of small R-parity and lepton number breaking couplings, primordial nucleosynthesis, thermal leptogenesis and gravitino dark matter are naturally consistent for gravitino

Thermal gravitino production and collider tests of leptogenesis

Considering gravitino dark matter scenarios, we obtain the full gauge-invariant result for the relic density of thermally produced gravitinos to leading order in the standard model gauge couplings.

Antimatter signatures of gravitino dark matter decay

The scenario of gravitino dark matter with broken R-parity naturally reconciles three paradigms that, albeit very well motivated separately, seem to be in mutual conflict: supersymmetric dark matter,

Gamma-ray spectrum from gravitino dark matter decay.

The energy spectrum of photons from gravitino decay is computed and its main qualitative features are discussed, revealing a diffuse gamma-ray flux with characteristic spectrum that could be measured in future experiments, such as GLAST or AMS-02.

Model with dynamical R-parity breaking and unstable gravitino dark matter

An unstable gravitino with lifetime longer than 10{sup 26} sec or so has been proposed as a possible dark matter candidate in supergravity models with R-parity breaking. We find a natural realization
