Abstract

In this chapter, a possible signature of Dark Matter pair production at colliders is discussed. The general features are described in Sect. 5.1 and the signal description in an effective field theory (EFT) framework is introduced in Sect. 5.2, where also the applicability of this EFT is briefly discussed. An alternative approach using a simplified model with a light mediator is presented in Sect. 5.3. The Standard Model background contributions are described in Sect. 5.4 and an overview of the collider results before 2012 is given in Sect. 5.5.
