Description

The strong CP problem of QCD can be solved via the Peccei-Quinn mechanism, which results in not-yet observed particles, called axions. They are natural dark matter candidates. Assuming that all dark matter is axionic, the theory can predict the mass of the axion providing useful hint for experimental searches. I review hier recent theory developments aiming to put such predictions on a solid footing.
