Dark Matter at the LHC: Bringing scalar portals into play

Presented by Dr. Jose Miguel NO


We discuss how mono-X searches at the LHC (with X = h,W,Z) could shed light on the nature of Dark Matter (DM) and its interactions with the Standard Model (SM), focusing on two well-motivated scenarios: (i) The scalar Higgs portal DM scenario, where such signatures could allow to distinguish between a linear and a non-linear realization of electroweak symmetry breaking. (ii) The pseudo-scalar portal to DM, possible to realize within extensions of the SM Higgs sector, and yielding novel DM signatures at the LHC.
