Eleanor Hall (UC Berkeley) “Matter through the looking glass”

Seminar Organizer

Event Details

Two critical problems are the origin of the baryon asymmetry and the nature of dark matter. In this talk, I will present a minimal, renormalizable model for baryogenesis in which both the dark and standard-model matter asymmetries originate from the same mechanism: electroweak-like baryogenesis in a dark “mirror” sector. In addition to outlining the model and the baryogenesis mechanism, this talk will also explore the dark matter phenomenology and detection prospects at present and future experiments.
