The effects of dark matter on compact binary systems

  title={The effects of dark matter on compact binary systems},
  author={Ebrahim Hassani and Amin Rezaei Akbarieh and Yousef Izadi},
As compact binary star systems move inside the halo of our Galaxies, they interact with dark matter particles. The interaction between dark matter particles and baryonic matter causes dark matter particles to lose some part of their kinetic energy. After dark matter particles have lost part of their kinetic energy, they gravitationally bound to stars and stars start to accrete dark matter particles from the halo. The accretion of dark matter particles inside compact binary systems increases the… Expand

Dark matter heats up in dwarf galaxies
Gravitational potential fluctuations driven by bursty star formation can kinematically ‘heat up’ dark matter at the centres of dwarf galaxies. A key prediction of such models is that, at a fixed darkExpand
Binary pulsars as probes of a Galactic dark matter disk
As a binary pulsar moves through a wind of dark matter particles, the resulting dynamical friction modifies the binary's orbit. We study this effect for the double disk dark matter (DDDM) scenario,Expand
Dark Matter And The Habitability of Planets
In many models, dark matter particles can elastically scatter with nuclei in planets, causing those particles to become gravitationally bound. While the energy expected to be released through theExpand
Dark-matter dynamical friction versus gravitational-wave emission in the evolution of compact-star binaries
The measured orbital period decay of compact-star binaries, with characteristic orbital periods $\sim 0.1$~days, is explained with very high precision by the gravitational wave (GW) emission of anExpand
Constraints on dark matter from the Moon
Abstract New and complimentary constraints are placed on the spin-independent interactions of dark matter with baryonic matter. Similar to the Earth and other planets, the Moon does not have anyExpand
Secular effects of ultralight dark matter on binary pulsars
Dark matter (DM) can consist of very light bosons behaving as a classical scalar field that experiences coherent oscillations. The presence of this DM field would perturb the dynamics of celestialExpand
Constraining light fermionic dark matter with binary pulsars
Abstract A binary system embedded in a Dark Matter (DM) background may experience a change in its orbital period due to dynamical friction as the binary moves through a wind of DM particles. SinceExpand
Signatures of primordial black hole 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. In the earlyExpand
White dwarfs as dark matter detectors
Dark matter that is capable of sufficiently heating a local region in a white dwarf will trigger runaway fusion and ignite a type Ia supernova. This was originally proposed in Graham et al. (2015)Expand
Early Black Hole formation by accretion of gas and dark matter
Recent discovery of luminous quasars at z > 6 has posed a severe challenge to the theory of structure formation of the universe. These quasars are thought to be powered by supermassive black holesExpand
