  • We show that the GeV scale γ-ray excess from the direction of the Galactic Center can be naturally explained by the pair annihilation of Abelian vector dark matter (VDM) into a pair of dark Higgs bosons (VV→ φ φ), followed by the subsequent decay of φ into b b-bar or τ τ-bar  . All the processes are described by a renormalizable VDM model with the Higgs portal, which is naturally flavor-dependent. Some parameter space of this scenario can be tested at the near future direct dark matter search experiments such as LUX and XENON1T.

  • Recent searches for multiple quasistellar-object images created by gravitational lensing provide new limits on the density of massive compact objects in the Universe. These limits imply that the cosmological density of compact objects more massive than 10{sup 9.9}{ital M}{sub {circle dot}} must be less than closure density, and that the density of compact objects more massive than 10{sup 10.3}{ital M}{sub {circle dot}} must be less than 0.25 of the closure density.
  • In this paper we study a class of supersymmetric models with non-universal gaugino masses that arise from a mixture of SU(5) singlet and non-singlet representations, i.e. a combination of 1, 24, 75 and 200. Based on these models we calculate the expected dark matter signatures within the linear combination 1 ⊕ 24 ⊕ 75 ⊕ 200. We confront the model predictions with the detected boson as well as current experimental limits from selected indirect and direct dark matter search experiments ANTARES respective IceCube and XENON. We comment on the detection/exclusion capability of the future XENON 1t project. For the investigatedmore » parameter span we could not find a SU(5) singlet model that fulfils the Higgs mass and the relic density constraint. In contrary, allowing a mixture of 1 ⊕ 24 ⊕ 75 ⊕ 200 enables a number of models fulfilling these constraints.« less
