Velocity dependent dark matter constraints from conversion of cross section in EFT.

Abstract content

The supersymmetric WIMP hypothesis is currently under scrutiny as there is no experimental result supporting the existence a lightest supersymmetric particle. The recent non-detection in large scale direct detection experiments has demonstrated that a broader approach towards dark matter particles is indicated. In this work, we show a simple approach to convert constraints/sensitivities from direct detection experiments into indirect constraints (and vice versa). This helps to use the complementary information provided by different dark matter search methods in a consistent way. Furthermore, the same approach is then useful to calculate the corresponding relic density under the assumption of thermal dark matter production.
