# Two dark matter candidates: the case of inert doublet and singlet scalars

@inproceedings{Blanger2021TwoDM, title={Two dark matter candidates: the case of inert doublet and singlet scalars}, author={G. B{\'e}langer and Ali Mjallal and Alexander Pukhov}, year={2021} }

We consider a multi-component dark matter model where the dark sector contains a scalar doublet and a complex scalar singlet. We impose a discrete Z4 symmetry to ensure such that the lightest component of the doublet, Ã, and the singlet, S̃, are both stable. Interactions between the dark sectors impact significantly dark matter observables, they allow in particular to significantly relax the direct detection constraints on the model. To determine the parameter space that satisfies relic density… Expand

We show that, by adding a gauge singlet scalar S to the standard model which is nonminimally coupled to gravity, S can act both as the inflaton and as thermal relic dark matter. We obtain the allowed… Expand
