Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
Dark Matter: The Lepton Connection
Date: Friday, March 14th
Time: 2:00 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Prateek Agrawa, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
Abstract: I will present models where the dominant coupling of dark matter is with the Standard Model leptons, and the interactions with quarks only arise at one-loop level. These models give rise to novel phenomenology. In particular, I will show the corrections to the muon magnetic moment in the context of a set of simplified models, and compare the resulting constraints with those from direct detection and collider experiments. While these constraints are generally severe, I will highlight the limited regions of parameter space where the muon magnetic moment anomaly can be consistently explained by leptophilic dark matter.
