Dark matter searches at the LHC - The impact of heavy quark loops

Abstract: The latest results from LHC searches for jets in association with missing transverse energy place strong bounds on the interactions of dark matter. In my talk, I will discuss how to convert these results into constraints on the dark matter direct detection cross section using effective operators. Because of the large separation of scales, a naive translation of limits often gives incorrect answers. I will discuss the importance of loop-corrections both for spin-independent interactions and spin-dependent interactions as well as for processes relevant for dark matter indirect detection.
