Search for dark matter at colliders

Buchmueller, Oliver; Doglioni, Caterina LU and Wang, Lian Tao (2017) In Nature Physics 13(3). p.217-223
Abstract

Among the numerous proposals to explain the nature of dark matter, there is the weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) scenario, which is based on a simple assumption that dark matter was in thermal equilibrium in the early hot Universe, and its particles have mass and interactions not too different from the massive particles in the standard model. In this Progress Article we overview the inference of WIMP production at high-energy colliders, with a particular focus on searches at the Large Hadron Collider.
