Determination of the Local Dark Matter Density in our Galaxy

  title={Determination of the Local Dark Matter Density in our Galaxy},
  author={Markus Weber and Wim de Boer},
Context. The rotation curve, the total mass and the gravitational pot ential of the Galaxy are sensitive measurements of the dark m tter halo profile. Aims. In this publication cuspy and cored DM halo profiles are analy sed with respect to recent astronomical constraints in orde r to constrain the shape of the Galactic DM halo and the local DM de nsity. Methods. All Galactic density components (luminous matter and DM) ar e parametrized. Then the total density distribution is constrained by… CONTINUE READING
