Heidelberg Joint Astronomical Colloquium

Speaker Karlheinz Meier
Title Make your own dark matter – in principle and in practice

I will review the astrophysical evidence for a particle physics interpretation of dark matter. Possible production mechanisms of candidate dark matter particles at the Large-Hadron-Collider (LHC) as well as their experimental signatures will be discussed. The presentation will summarize the current status and the performance of the LHC and its experiments.
