Fantastic WIMPs and Where to Find Them

Abstract:
The overwhelming evidence that the dominant form of matter in the Universe is fundamentally different from any visible matter demonstrates the limitations of our current understanding of particle physics. At the same time, it provides a compelling argument for expecting new physics to be discovered in the near future. In this colloquium, I will review the global effort to search for this so-called dark matter, pursued by a wide range of different experiments. I will argue that solving the dark matter puzzle requires input from many complementary observations and discuss how all this information can be combined using the most recent developments in analysis tools and global fitting frameworks.
