Charting the multi-TeV cosmos: long-range interactions in dark matter and baryogenesis

Project description

Dark matter and the matter-antimatter asymmetry at the teraelectronvolt scale

Most of the matter of the universe consists of some yet unknown particles, known as dark matter. Moreover, of the known particle species, our universe contains only particles and no antiparticles. The origin of this excess of ordinary matter over antimatter and the nature of dark matter are among the most fundamental questions in physics. Experiments are now probing the existence of particles with multi-TeV masses. Such heavy particles may constitute the dark matter, or may have participated in the matter-antimatter asymmetry generation. Their interactions are anticipated to involve important non-perturbative effects, particularly the formation of bound states. The EU-funded CosmoChart will investigate these effects on the dark-matter thermal decoupling and the matter-antimatter asymmetry generation in the early Universe.
