Hunting for Dark Matter
February 5, 2015 | TAAC 67 | 12:00 PM
Dan Hooper

Although dark matter seems very likely to be made up of some new variety (or varieties) of particle, the detection of these particles has been elusive. That being said, we are currently in a very data rich period, allowing us to test an unprecedented fraction of proposed dark matter models. We'll discuss the main techniques being pursued to test the WIMP hypothesis, and assess the current state and future of research in dark matter.
