Dark matter in multi-scalar extensions of the Standard Model with discrete symmetries

Abstract: Multi-scalar extensions of the Standard Model can accommodate a viable Dark Matter candidate and modification of Higgs decay rates, particularly into two photons. One of the simplest choices for the extended scalar sector is the Inert Doublet Model, i.e. the Standard Model with an additional inert scalar doublet. The IDM can be further extended by extra doublets or singlets, which may modify both DM- and collider phenomenology.
In this talk I will discuss the the interplay between the LHC results for the decay of the SM-like Higgs into two photons and the properties of Dark Matter from Planck measurements. Constraints for multi-scalar models obtained in this way are stronger or comparable to the constraints provided by direct and indirect detection experiments for low, medium and high Dark Matter mass regions.
