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 DarkExpand
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 inExpand
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 searchesExpand
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 electroweakExpand
Dark Matter Effective Theory
We organize the effective (self-)interaction terms for complex scalar dark matter candidates which are either an isosinglet, isodoublet or an isotriplet with respect to the weak interactions. TheExpand
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 interferenceExpand
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. Expand
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 modelExpand
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 andExpand
A model for dark matter, naturalness and a complete gauge unification
We consider dark matter in a minimal extension of the Standard Model (SM) which breaks electroweak symmetry dynamically and leads to a complete unification of the SM and technicolor couplingExpand
