Dark matter from hidden sectors

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

I review the set of theoretical ideas motivating experimental searches of light physics beyond Standard Model. Specifically, I give examples of very weakly interacting dark matter candidates that can be probed in the direct detection experiments. I then discuss a possibility of probing self-interacting dark matter via the production of dark matter bound states at colliders. Finally, I cover some prospects of direct search for light dark matter in the beam dump experiments.
