    Probing Isospin-Violating Dark Matter

    Full text link
    We discuss experimental probes of isospin-violating dark matter (IVDM), including direct and indirect detection strategies. We point out the important role which IVDM plays in understanding recent data regarding low-mass dark matter, and describe strategies for finding evidence of IVDM at current and upcoming experiments.Comment: 8 pages, 3 figures, proceedings of the Symposium on Cosmology and Particle Astrophysics (CosPA2011

    Novel Dark Matter Models and Detection Strategies

    Full text link
    We consider the impact of relaxing some typical assumptions about dark matter interactions, including isospin-invariance, elastic scattering and contact interactions. We show that detection strategies with neutrino detectors, gamma-ray searches, new direct detection experiments and collider searches can all provide complementary information. We argue that data from many such strategies may be necessary to gain a more complete understanding of dark matter interactions.Comment: 10 pages, 6 figures, to appear in the proceedings of CETUP* 201

    Asymmetric Dark Matter

    Full text link
    We review the theoretical framework underlying models of asymmetric dark matter, describe astrophysical constraints which arise from observations of neutron stars, and discuss the prospects for detecting asymmetric dark matter.Comment: 8 pages, 1 figure, LaTeX.
