Towards resolving strongly-interacting dark sectors at colliders.

Englert, Christoph and Nordström, Karl and Spannowsky, Michael (2016) 'Towards resolving strongly-interacting dark sectors at colliders.', Physical review D., 94 (5). 055028.


Dark sectors with strong interactions have received considerable interest. Assuming the existence of a minimally coupled dark sector which runs to strong interactions in the infrared, we address the question whether the scaling behavior of this dark sector can be observed in missing energy signatures at present and future hadron colliders. We compare these findings to the concrete case of self-interacting dark matter and demonstrate that the energy dependence of high-momentum transfer final states can in principle be used to gain information about the UV structure of hidden sectors at future hadron colliders, subject to large improvements in systematic uncertainties, which could complement proof-of-principle lattice investigations. We also comment on the case of dark Abelian Uð1Þ theories.
