Dark Matter beyond the WIMP paradigm
Dr. Mathias Garny (Physik Department T31, TUM)
The observational evidence for Dark Matter from its gravitational impact over a wide range of scales is compelling. Dark Matter could be comprised of a new particle species, whose properties are yet unknown. In particular, there is no clear evidence for an interaction between Dark Matter and visible matter aside from gravity. In this talk, I will discuss possibilities to probe the properties of Dark Matter in the absence of a sizeable coupling to the known particle species.
