New Physics at Colliders and in Space

Abstract : The quest for new physics is a challenging task which involves, on the one hand, the search for dark matter particles from space, and on the other hand, the search at colliders for particles predicted by theories beyond the Standard Model, such as supersymmetry. With the experimental constraints on new particles getting stronger, it becomes crucial to combine the limits from both sectors in order to guide future searches. To this end, it is essential to estimate and take into account correctly the astrophysical, nuclear and cosmological uncertainties, which are most often ignored. The first part of this thesis is dedicated to the study of such uncertainties and to their impact on the constraints applied on supersymmetry. Moreover, we investigate the interplay between the constraints from colliders and dark matter searches in some detail. The second part concerns the development and the implementation in the public code SuperIso Relic of numerical tools for the calculation of direct and indirect dark matter detection constraints which were designed specifically to take correctly into account astrophysical and nuclear uncertainties. Finally, in the third part of this work, we consider the cosmological implications of a hypothetical discovery of new particles at colliders. We show that it would be possible to test the assumptions of the standard cosmological model and to obtain information on the properties of the primordial Universe at an epoch which is beyond observational reach
