The four lectures that I gave in the XIII Ciclo de Cursos Especiais at the National Observatory of Brazil in Rio in October 2008 were (1) a brief history of dark matter and structure formation in a ΛCDM universe; (2) challenges to ΛCDM on small scales: satellites, cusps, and disks; (3) data on galaxy evolution and clustering compared with simulations; and (4) semi‐analytic models. These lectures, themselves summaries of much work by many people, are summarized here briefly. The slides [1… Expand
Search For Dark Matter Produced in Association With a Bottom-Quark In Proton-Proton Collision at $\sqrt{s} = $ 8 TeV With the CMS Experiment
Dark Matter is a hypothetical particle proposed to explain the missing matter discovered from the cosmological observation. The motivation of Dark Matter is overwhelming, however those studies mainlyExpand
Dark Matter Searches at the Large Hadron Collider

Faint high-redshift AGN in the Chandra deep field south: the evolution of the AGN luminosity function and black hole demography
Context. We present detection and analysis of faint X-ray sources in the Chandra deep field south (CDFS) using the 4 Ms Chandra observation. Aims. We place constraints on active galactic nuclei (AGN)Expand
Dissecting Galaxy Formation. II. Comparing Substructure in Pure Dark Matter and Baryonic Models
We compare the substructure evolution in pure dark matter (DM) halos with those in the presence of baryons, hereafter PDM and BDM models, respectively. The prime halos have been analyzed in theExpand

Contradiction between strong lensing statistics and a feedback solution to the cusp/core problem
Standard cosmology has many successes on large scales, but faces some fundamental difficulties on small, galactic scales. One such difficulty is the cusp/core problem. High resolution observations ofExpand
Cosmological Constraints from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey MaxBCG Cluster Catalog
We use the abundance and weak-lensing mass measurements of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey maxBCG cluster catalog to simultaneously constrain cosmology and the richness-mass relation of the clusters.Expand
High-redshift clumpy discs and bulges in cosmological simulations
We analyse the first cosmological simulations that recover the fragmentation of high-redshift galactic discs driven by cold streams. The fragmentation is recovered owing to an AMR resolution betterExpand
A New Channel for Detecting Dark Matter Substructure in Galaxies: Gravitational Lens Time Delays
We show that dark matter substructure in galaxy-scale halos perturbs the time delays between images in strong gravitational lens systems. The variance of the effect depends on the subhalo massExpand
ACCURATE UNIVERSAL MODELS FOR THE MASS ACCRETION HISTORIES AND CONCENTRATIONS OF DARK MATTER HALOS
A large amount of observations have constrained cosmological parameters and the initial density fluctuation spectrum to a very high accuracy. However, cosmological parameters change with time and theExpand
