Composite Dark Matter, for example

Yesterday I had a brief chat with Faculti about a paper I wrote with some collaborators last year.

In the paper, we were looking at what collider data (specifically from the Large Hadron Collider) could tell us about a relatively-little-studied class of Dark Matter models. But the chat itself turned into a sort of mini-manifesto about how I think we should be doing physics with the data we will take at CERN over the next few years.

Here’s a link to the video.

I hope its understandable and convincing, even if (and that’s the point really) you aren’t particularly interested in these particular models. (Although I don’t see why you wouldn’t be.)

The attentive amongst you will notice in the screenshot that I even have a Dark Matter production Feynman diagram on the whiteboard behind me, which I swear was not a set up.

PS The contributions from Jason Kong and Marion Thomas were part of their final year undergraduate projects with us at UCL, which makes the paper extra satisfying to me.

    A lucid argument for more and more precise measurements!
