I review the set of theoretical ideas motivating experimental searches of light physics beyond Standard Model using the high-intensity electron beams. While "dark photon" is the chief example of such physics, the other "light and dark" states (e.g. "Dark Higgses") are also of interest. I discuss particle physics, cosmology and astrophysics applications.

    A possible connection between the abundances of baryonic and dark matter (DM) has been explored so far mostly in the context of the so-called asymmetric DM. Recently, a very different mechanism, dubbed "WIMPy baryogenesis", has been proposed to relate the baryon asymmetry to DM annihilation. The...
