Doesn't dark matter imply a new force?

Given that every particle that we have experimental confirmation of is an oscillation of its field (from what we know), and given dark matter is thought to be a particle yet undiscovered according to most theory, isn't it implied that this is an oscillation in a yet unknown field? Especially with the lack of results relating to WIMPs and other particles theorized.

What theories predict a new field relating to dark matter? Have any garnered significant interest and additional work?

• The title says "force", the body says "field". Which one do you mean, and would you like to know anything more specific? (Because currently the literal answer to your question might be "Yes.", which is too short to even submit as an answer) – ACuriousMind Jan 20 at 13:18
• @ACuriousMind Please do give me an example of any theory or framework that predicts a force without an underlying field for which it can act, otherwise that was silly. But I updated my question:) – hisairnessag3 Jan 20 at 13:32
• ...that there are no forces without fields doesn't mean there are no fields without forces. It's perfectly possible that there is no new force and yet a new particle that makes up dark matter. – ACuriousMind Jan 20 at 13:39
• Even Higgs coupling could be considered a force if we are just talking fundamental interactions rather than exclusively momentum inducing vector fields, so I find that rather disingenuous. ...feel free to answer the question though. – hisairnessag3 Jan 20 at 13:57
• More on Higgs as a force: physics.stackexchange.com/q/1080/2451 and links therein. – Qmechanic Jan 20 at 17:29

In the standard model of particle physics the fundamental forces are carried by the gauge bosons of the $$SU(3)xSU(2)xU(1)$$ theory. In the Feynman diagrams, any $$dp/dt$$ transferred in the interaction can be considered as a force, but there are just three fundamental forces, weak, strong, electromagnetic (and in effective quantizations of gravity, also gravitational) .
