Dark Matter Searches in Colliders

Nov 26, 2020, 10:30 AM
Session: Dark Matter and Beyond Standard Model Searches Plenary talk


Thiago Tomei Fernandez (UNESP - Universidade Estadual Paulista (BR))


The quest for dark matter (DM) is at the forefront of the scientific programme of the LHC experiments. In this talk, I will briefly review the gravitational evidences for dark matter and what are the gross features that make a good DM particle candidate. I will briefly touch upon the modelling of DM production at colliders, and review the experimental procedures for a search for dark matter with the LHC general-purpose detectors ATLAS and CMS. Finally I will highlight some of the latest experimental results from those collaborations, focusing on the results with the full Run-2 (2015--2018) dataset.
