: We discuss a simple theory predicting the existence of a Dirac dark matter candidate from gauge anomaly cancellation. In this theory, the spontaneous breaking of local baryon number at the low scale can be understood. We show that the constraint from the dark matter relic abundance implies an upper bound on the theory of a few tens of TeV. We study the correlation between the dark matter constraints and the prediction for the electric dipole moment (EDM) of the electron. We point out the…

Asymptotically safe dark matter with gauged baryon number

We consider the inclusion of TeV-scale, fermionic dark matter in an asymptotically safe model of gauged baryon number that has been recently proposed [Phys. Rev. D 106 , no. 3, 035015 (2022)]. The

In this paper, we construct the first asymmetric strongly interacting massive particles (SIMP) dark matter (DM) model, where a new vector-like fermion and a new complex scalar both having nonzero

The dark side of the proton

We study the sensitivity of the High-Luminosity LHC to a light baryonic dark photon B, primarily coupled to quarks, as a constituent of the proton. This is achieved by allowing for a dark photon

Asymptotic safety and gauged baryon number

We consider a model with gauged baryon number that may be rendered asymptotically safe when gravitational effects above the Planck scale are taken into account. We study the ultraviolet fixed points in



Theory for Baryon Number and Dark Matter at the LHC

We investigate the possibility to test the simplest theory for spontaneous baryon number violation at the Large Hadron Collider. In this context the baryon number is a local gauge symmetry

Baryonic Higgs and dark matter

We discuss the correlation between dark matter and Higgs decays in gauge theories where the dark matter is predicted from anomaly cancellation. In these theories, the Higgs responsible for the

Leptophobic dark matter and the baryon number violation scale

We discuss the possible connection between the scale for baryon number violation and the cosmological bound on the dark matter relic density. A simple gauge theory for baryon number which predicts

Anomaly-free dark matter models

We investigate the predictions of anomaly-free dark matter models for direct and indirect detection experiments. We focus on gauge theories where the existence of a fermionic dark matter candidate is

Fermionic extensions of the Standard Model in light of the Higgs couplings

A bstractAs the Higgs boson properties settle, the constraints on the Standard Model extensions tighten. We consider all possible new fermions that can couple to the Higgs, inspecting sets of up to

Electroweak Baryogenesis from Dark-Sector CP Violation.

We present a novel mechanism of electroweak baryogenesis where CP violation occurs in a dark sector, comprised of standard model gauge singlets, thereby evading the strong electric dipole moment

Exotic leptons: Higgs, flavor and collider phenomenology

A bstractWe study extensions of the standard model by one generation of vector-like leptons with non-standard hypercharges, which allow for a sizable modification of the h → γγ decay rate for new

Electric dipole moments, new forces and dark matter

New sources of CP violation beyond the Standard Model are crucial to explain the baryon asymmetry in the Universe. We discuss the impact of new CP violating interactions in theories where a dark
