Status of CMS dark matter searches in 2011


We present the status of dark matter searches performed by the Compact Muon Solenoid Experiment using 7 TeV pp data collected by the CERN Large Hadron Collider in 2010 and 2011. The majority of the results shown here were obtained using 1.1 fb-1 of data. We give highlights from analyses searching for candidates such as WIMPs, gravitinos, axinos and TeV scale particles. All observations so far were found to be consistent with the Standard Model predictions. The search results were used to set exclusion limits on various new physics scenarios.Comment: Contribution to the proceedings of Balkan Workshop 2011 (BW2011, 28 August - 1 September 2011, Donji Milanovac, Serbia
