Exploring the Co-SIMP Dark Sector

Not scheduled


Poster Dark Matter T03: Dark Matter


Aditya Parikh (Harvard University)


A particularly salient aspect of particle dark matter models is the connection between thermal interactions and cosmological abundance. Extending from the famous WIMP paradigm is a rich sector of dark sector models with different number changing mechanisms, all of which realize a relic abundance via interactions with the Standard Model or itself. In this talk I will introduce one of these scenarios: Co-SIMP dark matter, whose key interactions involve both cannibalistic interactions and couplings to the Standard Model. I will discuss the phenomenology and UV completions of this scenario, as well as constraints and prospects for detection.
