First results on dark matter and new physics from GAMBIT

Pat Scott, Imperial College London

I will give an introduction to GAMBIT, the Global and Modular Beyond-the-Standard Inference Tool, focussing on the Beyond-the-Standard-Model science programme currently being pursued with it.  This includes indirect searches for dark matter with gamma-rays and neutrinos, direct searches with a range of underground experiments, cosmological constraints, associated searches for new particles at the LHC and in flavour experiments, and precision tests of the Standard Model.  I will present the latest combined constraints on singlet Higgs-portal dark matter, and on GUT-scale and weak-scale parameterisations of supersymmetry.  I will also briefly discuss GAMBIT extensions on the near horizon.

(The slides will be available here)

Weekly Theory Seminar, and also part of the seminar series of the Strategic Dark Matter Initiative. Note the time!
