# Weakly interacting dark matter from the minimal walking technicolor

@article{Kainulainen2010WeaklyID, title={Weakly interacting dark matter from the minimal walking technicolor}, author={Kimmo Kainulainen and Jussi Virkaj{\"a}rvi and Kimmo Tuominen}, journal={Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics}, year={2010}, volume={2010}, pages={029 - 029} }

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 family neutrino. We show that the model can give the right amount of dark matter over a range of the WIMP mass and mixing angle. We compute bounds on the model parameters from the current accelerator data including the oblique corrections to the precision electroweak parameters, as well as from…
