Description

We review recent theoretical constraints on models with thermal dark matter. The constraints include perturbative unitarity constraints as well as constraints from dark matter bound state formation. We focus on scenarios where the dark matter annihilates via neutral and charged bosons. The latter includes annihilation via colored and electrically charged scalars, which is common in supersymmetric scenarios. We also compare these theoretical constraints with the increasingly stringent experimental constraints.
