Περίληψη :

In the most traditional dark matter scenarios, dark matter is hypothesised to possess only contact-type interactions. However, there is motivation to consider dark matter coupled to light or massless force carriers. I will discuss some of the intricacies that arise in these scenarios, with emphasis on non-perturbative effects, in particular the formation of bound states and their phenomenological implications.
