Description: Title: Dark Matter Searches at the LHC
Host: John Conway
Room: 432
Abstract: After the discovery of a Higgs particle at the Large Hadron Collider, a next challenge will be the hunt for Dark Matter. There is convincing evidence that baryonic matter is only a small fraction of the matter in the Universe, and about five times less than the amount of so called Dark Matter. The most popular assumption for the nature of Dark Matter is that of a weakly interaction massive particle (WIMP). Here we will review the opportunities for the hunt for Dark Matter Wimps at the LHC with the ATLAS and CMS experiments. Signatures that have been used to search for Dark Matter include: the search for supersymmetry; the search for mono jets, mono-photons and other mono-objects; and the study of possible invisible decays of the Higgs particle. An overview will be given of the recent experimental results and their interpretation, and outlook will be given for the upcoming 14 TeV run at the LHC .
