Neutralino dark matter leads to the formation of numerous earth mass dark matter haloes at redshifts z\approx 60 (Diemand et al. 2005). These abundant CDM micro-haloes have cuspy density profiles that can easily withstand the Galactic tidal field at the solar radius. Zhao, Taylor, Silk & Hooper (astro-ph/0502049) concluded that ``...the majority of dark matter substructures with masses \sim 10^{-6}M_o will be tidally disrupted due to interactions with stars in the Galactic halo''. However these… Expand
Constraining dark matter sub-structure with the dynamics of astrophysical systems
The accuracy of the measurements of some astrophysical dynamical systems allows to constrain the existence of incredibly small gravitational perturbations. In particular, the internal Solar SystemExpand
Earthly probes of the smallest dark matter halos
Dark matter kinetic decoupling involves elastic scattering of dark matter off of leptons and quarks in the early universe, the same process relevant for direct detection and for the capture rate ofExpand
The First wimpy halos
Dark matter direct and indirect detection signals depend crucially on the dark matter distribution. While the formation of large scale structure is independent of the nature of the cold dark matterExpand
THE DARK CONNECTION BETWEEN THE EGRET EXCESS OF DIFFUSE GALACTIC GAMMA RAYS, THE CANIS MAJOR DWARF, THE MONOCEROS RING, THE INTEGRAL 511 keV ANNIHILATION LINE, THE GAS FLARING AND THE GALACTIC ROTATION CURVE
The EGRET excess of diffuse Galactic gamma rays shows all the key features of dark matter annihilation (DMA) for a WIMP mass in the range 50-100 GeV, especially the distribution of the excess isExpand
Anisotropy of dark matter annihilation with respect to the Galactic plane
We describe the anisotropy of dark matter clump distribution caused by tidal destruction of clumps in the Galactic disk. A tidal destruction of clumps with orbit planes near the disk plane occursExpand
How Cold is Cold Dark Matter
If cold dark matter consists of particles, these must be non-interacting and non-relativistic by definition. In most cold dark matter models however, dark matter particles inherit a non-vanishingExpand
The detection of subsolar mass dark matter halos
Dark matter halos of subsolar mass are the first bound objects to form in cold dark matter theories. In this paper, I discuss the present understanding of 'microhalos', their role in structureExpand
Implications for dark matter direct detection in the presence of LIGO-motivated primordial black holes
Abstract We discuss formation of dark matter (DM) mini-halos around primordial black holes (PBHs) and its implication on DM direct detection experiments, including axion searches. Motivated by LIGOExpand
