H-coupled minimal dark matter
Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium
I will provide a unified presentation of extensions of the Minimal Dark Matter framework in which new fermionic electroweak multiplets are coupled to each other via the Standard Model Higgs doublet. I will discuss an estimate the parameter space for viable dark matter candidates including an estimate for the Sommerfeld effect. I will also argue how the coupling to the Higgs can bring the Minimal Dark Matter scenario within the reach of present and future direct detection experiments.
