Self-interacting dark matter with a stable vector mediator

Article, Preprint English OPEN
Duerr, Michael; Schmidt-Hoberg, Kai; Wild, Sebastian;

Light vector mediators can naturally induce velocity-dependent dark matter self-interactions while at the same time allowing for the correct dark matter relic abundance via thermal freeze-out. If these mediators subsequently decay into Standard Model states such as elec... View more
