Description

As beyond-standard-model physics continues to elude discovery at the LHC, it becomes increasingly important to ask what we can learn about dark matter in a model-independent way. Effective Field Theories have become popular as a way construct model-independent constraints on dark matter, but at LHC energies it is crucial to understand their significance and limitations. I will present ways to measure the validity of the EFT approximation in a range of scenarios, and the consequences of the breakdown of the EFT approximation.
