Description

Models of composite dark matter, originating from a new strongly coupled dark sector, have a very interesting phenomenology. To make robust predictions in these models one often needs to investigate non-perturbative effects due to the strong self interactions. Lattice field theory methods and numerical simulations are well suited for this task and contribute to a solid uncertainty quantification. In this talk I review recent works in this direction,comparing lattice results for composite dark matter interactions to experimental bounds.
