Dark matter detection in the light of recent experimental results
The existence of dark matter was suggested, using simple gravitational arguments, seventy years ago. Although we are now convinced that most of the mass in the Universe is indeed some nonluminous
DarkSUSY: Computing Supersymmetric Dark Matter Properties Numerically
The question of the nature of the dark matter in the Universe remains one of the most outstanding unsolved problems in basic science. One of the best motivated particle physics candidates is the
Direct detection of WIMP dark matter
The question of the nature of dark matter in the universe is perhaps the greatest problem facing cosmology and particle physics at present. New observations of the cosmic microwave background
Electroweak dark matter
Abstract In the absence of any hints of new physics in LHC, TeV dark matter candidates interacting through electroweak force (EWDM) are still highly motivated. We extend the Standard Model by adding
Minimal dark matter in type III seesaw
We explore the possibility of a new dark matter candidate in the supersymmetric type III seesaw mechanism where a neutral scalar component of the Y = 0 triplet can be the lightest supersymmetric
Cosmology and the dark matter frontier
A brief overview is given about some issues in current astroparticle physics, focusing on the dark matter (DM) problem, where the connection to Large Hadron Collider (LHC) physics is particularly
Suppressing the scattering of WIMP dark matter and nucleons in supersymmetric theories
The continuously improving sensitivity of dark matter direct detection experiments has limited the interaction between dark matter and nucleons being increasingly feeble, while the dark matter relic
The Direct Detection of Dark Matter
After a brief review of the evidence for dark matter pervading the universe and of the hints that this dark matter is nonbaryonic, we discuss the implications of the recent evidence for the presence
ou rnal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics
We investigate the signatures of neutrinos produced in the annihilation of WIMP dark matter in the Earth, the Sun and at the Galactic centre within the framework of the Inert Doublet Model and
Non-baryonic dark matter: observational evidence and detection methods
The evidence for the existence of dark matter in the universe is reviewed. A general picture emerges, where both baryonic and non-baryonic dark matter is needed to explain current observations. In


Some Astrophysical Consequences of the Existence of a Heavy Stable Neutral Lepton
Recently, high-energy particle theorists have constructed new extended gauge theories which may fit experiment somewhat better than previous already very successful theories. One of the predictions
Cold dark matter candidates and the solar neutrino problem
Certain currently proposed weakly interacting elementary particles can have a high probability of solar capture if they make up the Galactic halo. Their present abundance in the Sun is here
A gamma-ray constraint on the nature of dark matter
If even a small component of the Galactic spheroid consists of the weakly interacting majorana fermions that are cold-dark-matter candidate particles for the Galactic halo, there should be a
