The recent discovery of gravitational waves from mergers of ∼10 M⊙ black hole binaries has stimulated interested in primordial black hole (PBH) dark matter in this mass range. Microlensing and dynamical constraints exclude all of the dark matter in compact objects with a delta function mass function in the range 10−7 ≲ M=M⊙ ≲ 105. However it has been argued that all of the dark matter could be composed of compact objects in this range with an extended mass function. We explicitly recalculate… Expand
