TITLEIntroduction to Direct Dark Matter Detection ( I )

ABSTRACTThe aim of this talk is giving the audience an overall picture of the direct Dark Matter detection experiment. I will briefly review the evidence and candidates for Dark Matter. Then I will give an overview of the direct detection and discuss the parameters on which the detection event rate depends: the velocity distribution of halo WIMPs, the WIMP–nucleus interactions, as well as the detector materials. Some detection techniques and currently running and projected experiments will also be described.
