High Energy Theory Seminar - Katherine Zurek, University of Michigan - Cosmic clues for dark matter & their implications for a dark matter asymmetry
We examine some of constraints and cosmic clues for the nature of the dark matter. We use these clues and constraints as motivation to examine in greater detail a previously little explored class of models, where the dark matter carries a conserved global charge analogous to baryon number. We discuss the implication of these theories for models of dark matter, and examine a few technical aspects of the evolution of the dark matter density and its implications for astrophysical objects such as neutron stars and white dwarves.
