Dark matter candidates are natural in technicolor theories. We introduce a general framework allowing to predict signals of technicolor dark matter at colliders and set constraints from Earth-based experiments such as CDMS and XENON. We show that the associate production of the composite Higgs can lead to relevant signals at the Large Hadron Collider.

Large Hadron Collider and Dark Matter

We review shortly the scenarios of Weakly Interactive Massive Particle (WIMP) and Super-Weakly Interacting Massive Particle (SuperWIMP) Dark Matter candidates and discuss the recent searches for Dark

Constraints on Majorana dark matter from a fourth lepton family

We study the possibility of dark matter in the form of heavy neutrinos from a fourth lepton family with helicity suppressed couplings such that dark matter is produced thermally via annihilations in

LHC and Tevatron bounds on the dark matter direct detection cross-section for vector mediators

A bstractWe study the interactions of a new spin-1 mediator that connects the Standard Model to dark matter. We constrain its decay channels using monojet and monophoton searches, as well as searches

Light asymmetric dark matter from new strong dynamics

A ~5 GeV `dark baryon' with a cosmic asymmetry similar to that of baryons is a natural candidate for the dark matter. We study the possibility of generating such a state through dynamical electroweak

Weakly interacting dark matter from the minimal walking technicolor

We study a weakly interacting dark matter particle motivated by minimal walking technicolor theories. Our WIMP is a mixture of a sterile state and a state with the charges of a standard model fourth

Dark Matter Interference

We study different patterns of interference in WIMP-nuclei elastic scattering that can accommodate the DAMA and CoGeNT experiments via an isospin violating ratio fn/fp = -0.71. We study interference

Hadronic and Hadron-Like Physics of Dark Matter

Several models of dark matter are discussed, predicting new colored, hyper-colored or techni-colored particles and their accelerator and non-accelerator probes and the nontrivial properties of the proposed dark matter candidates can shed new light on the dark matter physics.

Superweakly interacting dark matter from the Minimal Walking Technicolor

We study a superweakly interacting dark matter particle motivated by minimal walking technicolor theories. Our WIMP is a mixture of a sterile state and a state with the charges of a standard model

Light magnetic dark matter in direct detection searches

We study a fermionic Dark Matter particle carrying magnetic dipole moment and analyze its impact on direct detection experiments. In particular we show that it can accommodate the DAMA, CoGeNT and
