Illuminating the Dark Side of Particle Physics

Eder Izaguirre

An emerging paradigm in particle physics is the possibility that new matter resides in its own sector — a Dark Sector (DS) — connected to the Standard Model via a “minimal” portal. I will discuss the scenario where matter in the DS is uncharged under the known forces and is a viable candidate for light Dark Matter. I describe recent proposals for new small-scale experiments to robustly test this scenario. Finally, I will discuss possible explanations of the muon’s anomalous magnetic moment discrepant value.
