Dark matter effective theory

SciPost Phys. Lect. Notes 38 (2022) · published 31 January 2022

Part of the 2021-07: Dark Matter Collection in the Les Houches Summer School Lecture Notes Series.


Les Houches 2021 lectures on dark matter effective field theory (short course). The aim of these two lectures is to calculate the DM-nucleus cross section for a simple example, and then generalize to the treatment of general effective interactions of spin-1/2 DM. Relativistic local operators, the heavy-DM effective theory, the chiral effective Lagrangian, and nuclear effective operators are briefly discussed.
