Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
Evaluating the Thermal WIMP Paradigm in the Light of Anomalies in 2014
Time: 2:00 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin
Speaker: Kuver Sinha, Syracuse University
Abstract: I'll look back at some of the anomalies we have seen this year: the "dark matter keV line", the mild, persistent evidence for dark radiation, and the niggling excesses in the charged lepton + jets (leptoquark search) and dilepton (SUSY search) final states at the LHC. I'll discuss prospects for the thermal WIMP paradigm in the light of these anomalies. I'll also discuss the fast-disappearing BICEP anomaly, and whether future polarization experiments will be able to give us, ​unambiguously, the scale of inflation.
