Physics and Astronomy Colloquium

Wednesday, February 25th 2009
3:35 pm:
Speaker: Keith Olive, University of Minnesota
Subject: Dark Matter: From Cosmology to Colliders

The nature and identity of the dark matter of the Universe is one of the most challenging problems facing modern cosmology.
Supersymmetry offers a natural candidate for dark matter.
After a brief review of the evidence for dark matter, I will discuss the phenomenological consequences for supersymmetry both in the context of dark matter and upcoming experiments at the LHC.
