On the quantum statistical physics of dark matter freeze-out
Abstract: The non-observation of dark matter at the LHC and other searches poses a challenge both for model building and for the theoretical tools with which any given model is addressed. In this talk issues related to the latter challenge are discussed, within the context of the classic WIMP paradigm. As a concrete example, we illustrate the recently fashionable idea that bound states could appear in the dark sector and significantly affect the freeze-out dynamics.
