[NCTS Seminar - Particle Physics Journal Club] Dark Matter Freeze-out via Forbidden Channels
Title：Dark Matter Freeze-out via Forbidden Channels

Place：R517, New Physics Building, NTU
Kinematically forbidden channels can set the freeze-out dark matter (DM) relic abundance. These are described by DM annihilations into heavier states, which vanish at zero temperature limit but occur at finite temperatures in the early Universe. I will discuss its underlying mechanism and the related searches in experiments.
