Description

An effective field theory (EFT) approach allows us to describe WIMP interactions as point-like, regardless of the specific fundamental theory at higher energies. We consider simultaneously all phenomenologically relevant EFT operators for scalar DM and perform a global statistical analysis. We identify the most probable regions of the theory parameter space compatible with experimental constraints on the relic density as well as with direct and indirect detection experiments.
