Detecting dark matter substructure spectroscopically in strong gravitational lenses

Abstract

The Cold Dark Matter (CDM) model for galaxy formation predicts that a significant fraction of mass in the dark matter haloes that surround L ∼ L∗ galaxies is bound in substructures of mass 104–107M⊙. The number of observable baryonic substructures (such as dwarf galaxies and globular clusters) falls short of these predictions by at least an order of… (More)
