The lightest supersymmetric particle, most likely the neutralino, might account for a large fraction of dark matter in the Universe. We show that the primordial spectrum of density fluctuations in… Expand

Abstract A classical Poincare invariant particle dynamics is formulated in the framework of constraint Hamiltonian systems. This canonical formalism is compatible with physical requirements like… Expand

We present, using the statistical model, an analysis of the production of light nuclei, hypernuclei and their antiparticles in central collisions of heavy nuclei. Based on these studies we provide… Expand
