Abstract

We present a model independent analysis of thermal dark matter constraining its mass and interaction strengths with data from astro- and particle physics experiments. We show that the observationally favored dark matter particle mass region is 1-1000 GeV with effective interactions that have a cut-off in the range of 1-10 TeV.
