Since a new experiment (ΧΕΝΟΝ1Τ) will take place in Italy to directly detect WIMPs and since there are already many experiments trying to do the same or something similar (e.g. CERN LHC, LUX, CoGent, ...
If dark matter participates in the weak interaction, clouds could cool via thermal neutrino radiation...? And even if does not participate in the weak interaction, clouds should contract via ...
I'm no expert in this stuff, it's just a hobby to me, but I've been reading up on the WIMP theory a bit - layman articles, not published research. From Wiki on Dark Matter: It also cannot ...
In their paper, "A Theory of Dark Matter" (http://arxiv.org/pdf/0810.0713v3.pdf), the authors in a section argue that if there is a massive dark matter particle $\chi$ which interacts via a force ...
I have some trouble in the interpretation of the WIMP cross-section annihilation versus their mass. I understand that the lines represent a upper bound on the cross section from the observation. ...
"Stable Higgs Bosons - new candidate for cold dark matter", by Yutaka Hosotani Has the hypothesis in the above article been proved? What about WIMPs?
As a dark matter candidate, what should be the temperature and kinetic energy (or also the speed) of the WIMPs (weakly interacting massive particles) to agree with the observed distribution of dark ...
