    Indirect Probe of Electroweak-Interacting Particles with Mono-Lepton Signatures at Hadron Colliders

    Electroweak-interacting massive particles (EWIMPs) exist in a broad class of new physics models beyond the Standard Model. Searching for such particles is one of most primary goal at the LHC and future colliders. The EWIMP generally affects the LHC signatures through quantum corrections even without direct productions. By measuring the Standard Model processes precisely, we can indirectly probe the EWIMPs. In this paper, we study the current constraint and future prospect of the EWIMPs by using the precision measurements of mono-lepton production from the charged Drell-Yan processes at hadron colliders. We found the mono-lepton signature can be a better probe than dilepton signature from the neutral Drell-Yan processes.Comment: 10 pages, 7 figure

    PAMELA and ATIC Anomalies in Decaying Gravitino Dark Matter Scenario

    Full text link
    Motivated by the recent results from the PAMELA and ATIC, we study the cosmic-ray electron and positron produced by the decay of gravitino dark matter. We calculate the cosmic-ray electron and positron fluxes and discuss implications to the PAMELA and ATIC data. In this paper, we will show that the observed anomalous fluxes by the PAMELA and ATIC can be explained in such a scenario. We will also discuss the synchrotron radiation flux from the Galactic center in such a scenario.Comment: Prepared for the proceedings of Dark 2009:Seventh International Heidelberg Conference on Dark Matter in Astro and Particle Physic

    Relic abundance of dark matter in the minimal universal extra dimension model

    We investigate the relic abundance of dark matter in the minimal universal extra dimension model including resonance processes by second Kaluza-Klein (KK) particles in all coannihilation processes. After including second KK resonance processes, the relic abundance of dark matter is reduced by about 30%. Thus, the compactification scale 1/R of the extra dimension consistent with the WMAP observation is increased by a few hundred GeV. As a result, the cosmologically allowed compactification scale is 600 GeV < 1/R < 1400 GeV for Lambda R = 20.Comment: 24 pages, 7 figure

    Sneutrino Inflation with Asymmetric Dark Matter

    Full text link
    The asymmetric dark matter scenario is known to give an interesting solution for the cosmic coincidence problem between baryon and dark matter densities. In the scenario, the dark matter asymmetry, which is translated to the dark matter density in the present universe, is transferred from the B-L asymmetry generated in the early universe. On the other hand, the generation of the B-L asymmetry is simply assumed, though many mechanisms for the generation are expected to be consistent with the scenario. We show that the generation of the asymmetry in the sneutrino inflation scenario works similarly to the asymmetric dark matter scenario, because the non-renormalizable operator which translates the B-L asymmetry to the dark matter asymmetry is naturally obtained by integrating right-handed neutrinos out. As a result, important issues concerning cosmology (inflation, the mass density of dark matter, and the baryon asymmetry of the universe) as well as neutrino masses and mixing have a unified origin, namely, the right-handed neutrinos.Comment: 11 pages, 4 figures; v2: reference added, Fig. 3 changed and explanation added; v3: version accepted for publication in PR
