Constraints on Majorana Dark Matter from the LHC and IceCube

27 Mar 2016  ·  Heisig Jan, Krämer Michael, Pellen Mathieu, Wiebusch Christopher ·

We consider a simplified model for Majorana fermion dark matter and explore constraints from direct, indirect and LHC collider searches. The dark matter is assumed to couple to the Standard Model through a vector mediator with axial-vector interactions... We provide detailed analyses of LHC mono-jet searches and IceCube limits on dark matter annihilation in the Sun. In particular, we develop a method for calculating limits on simplified WIMP dark matter models from public IceCube data, which are only available for a limited number of Standard Model final states. We demonstrate that LHC and IceCube searches for Majorana dark matter are complementary and derive new limits on the dark matter and mediator masses, including in addition constraints from LHC di-jet searches, direct detection and the dark matter relic density. read more
