Dark Matter

  title={Dark Matter},
  author={Viktor Zacek},
The nature of the main constituents of the mass of the universe is one of the outstanding riddles of cosmology and astro-particle physics. Current models explaining the evolution of the universe, and measurements of the various components of its mass, all have in common that an appreciable contribution to that mass is non-luminous and non-baryonic, and that a large fraction of this so-called dark matter must be in the form of non-relativistic massive particles (Cold Dark Matter: CDM). In the… 
Scalar field dark matter spectator during inflation: the effect of self-interaction
Nowadays cosmological inflation is the most accepted mechanism to explain the primordial seeds that led to the structure formation observed in the Universe. Current observations are in well agreement
Fermi Bubbles in Scalar Field Dark Matter halos
In recent times, the Scalar Field Dark Matter (SFDM) model (also called Fuzzy, Wave, Ultralight dark matter model) has received much attention due to its success in describing dark matter on both
On wave dark matter in spiral and barred galaxies
We recover spiral and barred spiral patterns in disk galaxy simulations with a Wave Dark Matter (WDM) background (also known as Scalar Field Dark Matter (SFDM), Ultra-Light Axion (ULA) dark matter,
Search for dark matter with CRESST
The search for direct interactions of dark matter particles remains one of the most pressing challenges of contemporary experimental physics. A variety of different approaches is required to probe
The Einstein-Klein-Gordon Equations, Wave Dark Matter, and the Tully-Fisher Relation
We examine the Einstein equation coupled to the Klein-Gordon equation for a complex-valued scalar field. These two equations together are known as the Einstein-Klein-Gordon system. In the low-field,
Decay of Solutions to the Klein–Gordon Equation on Some Expanding Cosmological Spacetimes
The decay of solutions to the Klein–Gordon equation is studied in two expanding cosmological spacetimes, namely the de Sitter universe in flat Friedmann–Lemaître–Robertson–Walker (FLRW) form and
Icosahedral Symmetry in the MSSM
In this note we discuss the relationship between the 15 synthemes in the icosahedron and the 40 particles in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model, or MSSM,including the vector W±, Z bosons,8
Scintillation of Liquid Helium for Low-Energy Nuclear Recoils
The scintillation properties of liquid helium upon the recoil of a low energy helium atom are discussed in the context of the possible use of this medium as a detector of dark matter. It is found
Effect of an electric field on liquid helium scintillation produced by fast electrons
The dependence on applied electric field (0--40 kV/cm) of the scintillation light produced by fast electrons and $\ensuremath{\alpha}$ particles stopped in liquid helium in the temperature range of
On the Uniqueness of Higher Energy Stationary States of the Schrödinger--Newton System
Author(s): Hingtgen, Robert Leo | Advisor(s): Qing, Jie | Abstract: This thesis is a study of the uniqueness of the higher stationary states of the Schr quot;odinger--Newton system under the


The early Universe
In the past few years one of the most exciting areas of research in physics has been the interdisciplinary field of cosmology and particle physics. The NSF's Institute for Theoretical Physics in

The status of experiments and ideas relevant for the detection of the dark matter, which is suspected to be the dominant constituent of the Universe, are reviewed.
The New Scientist
In addition to its own weight, it will carry a 32 kilogram payload within the backpack. To the pilot this would feel like they were carrying just 2 kilograms, says Kazerooni. All the best science
