Description

In various theories of strongly-interacting dark matter non-degenerate flavors play an important role to satisfy constraints like relic abundance. To quantify the impact we investigate a candidate theory, Sp(4) gauge theory with two fundamental flavors. At the relevant quark mass scales we find interesting patterns in the pseudoscalar and vector channel, which mix behavior from chiral and non-chiral origins. This paves the way for testing such a scenario quantitatively in a phenomenological setting.
