Dark matter from an effective couplings approach





Dark Matter, Relic Density, Beyond Standard Model


In this work we briefly review dark matter evidence, in the Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMP) paradigm we study the cases of scalar and fermion dark matter candidates. Our study introduces effective couplings between dark matter and Standard Model matter, it is intended as an exercise for academic purposes setting up the required tools for a further analysis. Under the last assumption, we calculate the relic density in order to constrain the model parameter space.
