Shedding light on the symmetries of dark matter

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


I consider symmetries which could explain observed properties of dark matter, namely, its stability on Gyr time scales or its relic density and discuss how such symmetries can be discovered through the study of the propagation and polarization of light in its transit through dark matter.
