Particle Physics Implications for Dark Matter

Although the cosmological evidence for dark matter is overwhelming and becoming increasingly precise, the nature of dark matter remains a mystery. Particle physics plays an important role, both by suggesting candidates and by imposing powerful constraints. This interplay is especially fruitful in the case of supersymmetry. I will review what we do (and do not) know about supersymmetric dark matter. I will then describe some recent developments and their implications for dark matter searches.
