Résumé / Abstract Seminaire_GReCO

"The inert doublet model. A new archetype for dark matter?"

M. Tytgat

I will review and motivate a model of dark matter based on a very simple and yet interesting extension of the Standard Model of Particle Physics, the so-called Inert Doublet Model. The dark matter candidat, the lightest inert particle (LIP), is a weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP), somehow analogous to the Higgs boson. I will present the constraints from the WMAP abundance and the prospect for both direct and indirect detection.
