Dark matter particle candidates are being searched at CERN and the various dark matter models are being probed by cosmological simulations. The usual way to probe models via cosmology is to plug a candidate into a cosmological simulation and then compare the results with observations. Yet another way is to calculate cross-sections of potential candidates and estimate their effects near compact objects ( e.g. http://arxiv.org/abs/1506.04143 ) There is also research in modelling various effects of different models. How much do you believe the various probes at cosmological models will help in searching for the dark matter particle? Do you believe building various computational models for different DM candidates is premature at this point?
