Theoretical hypotheses on the nature of the dark matter particles are numerous, so we concentrate on several candidates, such as WIMPs, axions and sterile neutrinos, and also give examples of more elusive candidates such as fuzzy dark matter.

**Aron J. Beekman, et al.**-

**arXiv.org**

Starting from a careful definition of symmetry in physics, we introduce symmetry breaking and its consequences. Emphasis is placed on the physics of singular limits, showing the reality of symmetry breaking even in small-sized systems.
