Can WIMPs be created by decay of a Higgs Boson?
« on: 12/06/2016 13:09:03 »
"Since WIMPs (Weakly Interacting Massive Particles) interact with the weak nuclear force, they can be created by the decay of a particle with a higher energy, such as the Higgs Boson"

Also, one more question: If WIMPs interact with the weak nuclear force, if they collide with the nucleus of an atom does the proton/neutron decays?
