Description

Simple single component WIMP Dark Matter (DM) models are under pressure from direct detection (DD). This is related to the relation between annihilation- and DD cross-section in such models. By contrast, multicomponent WIMP DM models leave open a large part of the parameter space and allow for a very rich phenomenology. We study these issues using the example of a UV complete framework containing both scalar and vector WIMPs. This model arises from hidden gauge symmetries, connected to the Standard model with a Higgs portal.
