Particle Physics Theory seminar

Dark matter, collider searches and the early Universe

  • Event time: 3:00pm
  • Event date: 10th April 2019
  • Speaker: Farvah Nazila Mahmoudi (Lyon University and CERN)
  • Location: Room 4325A,

Event details

Studies of dark matter lie at the interface of collider physics, astrophysics and cosmology. We will first review dark matter direct and indirect detection constraints together with the relic density and discuss in some detail their uncertainties. We will then show how knowledge of dark matter density can be used, in conjunction with measurements of the parameters of a scenario for beyond the Standard Model physics, to provide information about the evolution of the Universe before Big Bang Nucleosynthesis.

About Particle Physics Theory seminars

The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
