The nonbaryonic dark matter of the Universe is assumed to consist of new stable forms of matter. Their stability reflects symmetry of micro world and mechanisms of its symmetry breaking. In the early Universe heavy metastable particles can dominate, leaving primordial black holes (PBHs) after their decay, as well as the structure of particle symmetry breaking gives rise to cosmological phase transitions, from which massive black holes and/or their clusters can originate. PBHs can be formed in…

Clusters of Primordial Black Holes

The Primordial Black Holes (PBHs) are a well-established probe for new physics in the very early Universe. We discuss here the possibility of PBH agglomeration into clusters that may have several

Dark matter simulations with primordial black holes in the early Universe

Primordial Black Holes (PBH) with masses of order $10-30 M_\odot$ have been proposed as a possible explanation of the gravitational waves emission events recently discovered by the LIGO observatory.

It is believed that primordial black holes (PBHs), if they exist, can serve as a powerful tool to probe the early stage of the cosmic history. Essentially, in the radiation-dominated universe, PBHs

Constraining the primordial black hole abundance with 21-cm cosmology

The discoveries of a number of binary black hole mergers by LIGO and VIRGO has reinvigorated the interest that primordial black holes (PBHs) of tens of solar masses could contribute non-negligibly to

Primordial black holes and induced gravitational waves in k-inflation

Recent observational constraints indicate that primordial black holes (PBHs) with the mass scale ∼ 10-12M⊙ can explain most of dark matter in the Universe. To produce this kind of PBHs, we need an

Testing Primordial Black Holes with multi-band observations of the stochastic gravitational wave background

The mass distribution of Primordial Black Holes (PBHs) is affected by drops in the pressure of the early Universe plasma. For example, events in the standard model of particle physics, such as the W

Primordial black holes and secondary gravitational waves from k and G inflation

The possibility that in the mass range around 10-12  M⊙ most of dark matter is constituted of primordial black holes (PBHs) is a very interesting topic. To produce PBHs with this mass, the primordial

Waves from the centre: probing PBH and other macroscopic dark matter with LISA

A significant fraction of cosmological dark matter can be formed by very dense macroscopic objects, for example primordial black holes. Gravitational waves offer a promising way to probe these kinds



Fundamental Particle Structure in the Cosmological Dark Matter

The nonbaryonic dark matter of the universe is assumed to consist of new stable forms of matter. Their stability reflects symmetry of micro-world and mechanisms of its symmetry breaking. Particle

Primordial black holes

Primordial black holes (PBHs) are a profound signature of primordial cosmological structures and provide a theoretical tool to study nontrivial physics of the early Universe. The mechanisms of PBH

Early formation of galaxies induced by clusters of black holes

A model for the formation of supermassive black holes at the center of a cluster of primordial black holes is developed. It is assumed that ∼10−3 of the mass of the Universe consists of compact

Tidal capture of a primordial black hole by a neutron star: implications for constraints on dark matter

In a close encounter with a neutron star, a primordial black hole can get gravitationally captured by depositing a considerable amount of energy into nonradial stellar modes of very high angular

Gamma rays from primordial black holes

This paper examines the possibilities of detecting hard ..gamma..-rays produced by the quantum-mechanical decay of small black holes created by inhomogeneities in the early universe. Observations of

The formation of primary galactic nuclei during phase transitions in the early universe

A new mechanism describing the formation of protogalaxies is proposed, based on the second-order phase transition in the inflation stage and the domain wall formation upon the end of inflation. The

We update the constraints on the fraction of the Universe going into primordial black holes in the mass range 10{sup 9}-10{sup 17} g associated with the effects of their evaporations on big bang

The Observed Galactic Annihilation Line: Possible Signature of Accreting Small-Mass Black Holes in the Galactic Center

Various balloon and satellite observatories have revealed what appears to be an extended source of 0.511 MeV annihilation radiation with a flux of ~10-3 photons cm-2 s-1 centered on the Galactic

The Observed Galactic Annihilation Line. Possible Signature of the Cluster for Accreting Small Mass Black Holes

Compton Gamma Ray Observatory, OSSE, SMM, TGRS, balloon and recent INTEGRAL data reveal a feature of the 0.511 MeV annihilation radiation of the Galactic Center with a flux of approximately 5 × 10 − 4
