Description

The recently proposed WIMPless dark matter scenario provides a dark matter candidate which can have a wide range of possible masses, while still retaining the naturally correct thermal relic density of the WIMP scenario. WIMPless dark matter thus leads to a broad array of possible signatures at current and upcoming experiments. We review the WIMPless scenario and discuss detection strategies. We focus on possible signatures at the Tevatron, the LHC and IceCube/DeepCore, and on specific models which can explain data from DAMA/LIBRA and CoGeNT.
