We suggest that a weak isotriplet composite scalar possessing an unbroken U(1) global symmetry naturally arises in technicolor models leading to an interesting type of dark matter candidate: the iTIMP. We propose explicit models of the iTIMP, study earth based constraints, and suggest possible collider signals.

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

Naturality, unification, and dark matter

We consider a model where electroweak symmetry breaking is driven by technicolor dynamics with minimal particle content required for walking coupling and saturation of global anomalies. Furthermore,

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

Techni-Composite Higgs models with (a)symmetric dark matter candidates

We propose a novel class of composite models that feature both a technicolor and a composite Higgs vacuum limit, resulting in an asymmetric dark matter candidate. These Techni-Composite Higgs models

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.

Quasielastic Lepton Scattering off Two-Component Dark Matter in Hypercolor Model

The interaction of high-energy leptons with components of Dark Matter in a hypercolor model is considered and a strong dependence of the total cross section on the Dark Matter components mass is found.

Spontaneous baryogenesis from extremely light asymmetric dark matter

We present a mechanism where a particle asymmetry in one sector is used to generate an asymmetry in another sector. The two sectors are not coupled through particle number violating interactions and

Dark matter from unification

We consider a minimal extension of the Standard Model (SM), which leads to unification of the SM coupling constants, breaks electroweak symmetry dynamically by a new strongly coupled sector and leads

Isotriplet Dark Matter on the Lattice: SO(4)-gauge theory with two Vector Wilson fermions

We present preliminary results for simulations of SO(4)-gauge theory with two Dirac Wilson fermions transforming according to the vector representation. We map out the phase diagram including the
