Description

Axions and axion-like particles (ALPs) may be non-thermally produced in the early universe and survive as constituents of dark matter. We describe their theoretical motivation and their phenomenology. A huge region in parameter space spanned by their couplings to the Standard Model particles and their masses can give rise to the observed cold dark matter abundance.
