Title: The search for dark matter using monojets and monophotons with the ATLAS detector

This paper presents results on the search for dark matter with the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. The studies discussed involve searches for events with a single (mono) jet or photon plus missing transverse energy interpreted with effective field theory as well as searches for light gravitinos and lepton-jets. No evidence for dark matter production has been found and the results have been translated into exclusion limits on physics beyond the Standard Model for several different scenarios. In particular, ATLAS bounds on weakly interacting massive particles are seen to be both complementary and quite competitive to those from direct detection experiments.
