    • Abstract


      This write-up gives a rather elementary introduction into particle physics aspects of the cosmological dark matter puzzle. A fairly comprehensive list of possible candidates is given; in each case the production mechanism and possible ways to detect them (if any) are described. I then describe detection of the, in my view, most promising candidates, weakly interacting massive particles or WIMPs, in slightly more detail. The main emphasis will be on recent developments.
