Good reviews about dark matter candidates?

  1. Feb 19, 2014 #1
    Anyone knows about a good review of dark matter candidates?

    I want to learn about that but I would like to have a good review to start, any suggestion?
    Perhaps at an introductory level but if you have someting advanced is more than welcomed.
    Books, papers, anything.

    A good general review is somewhat elusive. Most authors are biased toward one or another model. This is entirely understandable as many papers have been published on many models. Here is one that is pretty good; http://arxiv.org/abs/1204.2373, Mini--Review of Dark Matter: 2012.

    Here's a review of particle dark matter candidates and searches: http://arxiv.org/abs/arXiv:1001.0942

    I have not read it and cannot vouch for it, but it's on my reading list.
