Talk Title: "New Insights into Cosmic Abundances of Matter and Related Phenomenology"

Abstract:

I will review prominent puzzles about the cosmic relic abundances of atomic matter and dark matter, and discuss new theoretical ideas/models to address these puzzles. The connection of these theories with new particle physics frontiers such as new forces, Higgs mechanism and supersymmetry will be discussed. I will also demonstrate the rich phenomenological predictions from these theories that can be tested in a variety of experiments such as with neutrino detectors and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
