Abstract

Recent results of microlensing surveys, show that 10-20 % of the dark halo mass of the Milky Way consists of compact objects. The masses of these compact objects range from 0.1 to 1 solar mass. New theoretical cooling models for white dwarfs, and the detection of faint blue high proper motion objects, imply that ancient white dwarfs might make up part of… (More)
