Manoj Kaplighat (UC, Irvine) "The self-interacting dark matter paradigm: motivations and tests"

May 4, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Abstract:
I will describe how a simple model where dark matter has large elastic self-interactions (cross section over mass of order barns per GeV) can fully explain the observed diversity of all galactic rotation curves. I will summarize the constraints imposed on model building by observations of clusters of galaxies and end with an outline of tests of this paradigm.
