Author(s): Oscar Catà, Alejandro Ibarra, and Sebastian IngenhüttWe consider the standard model extended with a dark matter particle in curved spacetime, motivated by the fact that the only current evidence for dark matter is through its gravitational interactions, and we investigate the impact on the dark matter stability of terms in the Lagrangian linear in the…[Phys.
