MCTP HET BROWN BAG SEMINAR | Annihilation Signals from Asymmetric Dark Matter

Oskar Klein Room 3481 Randall

I will begin with an overview of models of Asymmetric Dark Matter, in which the present day density of dark matter (DM) is set by a particle asymmetry, similar to baryonic matter. Annihilation-like indirect detection signals are not typically expected in the simplest models of this type, as the DM is non-self-conjugate and the relic density of anti-DM is negligible. However, for non-minimal models observable annihilation signals can occur and I will highlight some motivated models which accomplish this.
