Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
Aspects of Lepton-Flavored Dark Matter
Date: Tuesday, November 11th
Time: 3:00 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Can Kilic, The University of Texas at Austin
Abstract: All matter in the Standard Model (SM) appears in three generations, with an intricate flavor structure the origin of which is not well understood. This motivates the question whether distinct phenomenological features arise if dark matter (DM) also has a non-trivial flavor structure. In this talk I will focus on the possibility where the flavor structure of DM is linked to SM flavor in the lepton sector, and review the experimental signatures of this scenario. In particular, I will argue that the generation of a lepton asymmetry at a high energy scale can also produce a DM asymmetry, which can strongly affect the sensitivity of direct detection experiments, and I will present novel signatures that can appear at colliders and in indirect detection experiments for lepton-flavored DM.
