    Gravitational instabilities give rise to conglomeration of matter in the form of various structures. Non-baryonic Hot Dark Matter (HDM) particles are conjectured to have decoupled from rest of the matter/radiation when their speed was relativistic. Cold Dark Matter (CDM) particles are, however,...

    This short review examines recent progress in understanding dark matter, dark energy, and galactic halos using theory that departs minimally from standard particle physics and cosmology. Strict conformal symmetry (local Weyl scaling covariance), postulated for all elementary massless fields,...

    The exchange forces appear to be of the nature of space-time quantized gravity/gravitation, which may be called gravity particles. The so-called dark matter may exist in the form of these gravity particles. It also appears that the universe has a finite size, although it has no boundary.

    More than 95% cosmic baryon matter in the universe is in the state of IGM (intergalactic medium), which is compressible fluid governed by the gravity of dark matter. Observations show that the dynamical and thermodynamical states of baryon fluid are far from equilibrium. It has been revealed...

    Considering scenarios in which the gravitino is the lightest supersymmetric particle and a charged slepton the next-to-lightest supersymmetric particle (NLSP), we discuss cosmological constraints on the masses of the gravitino and the NLSP slepton. The presented mass bounds are crucial for...

    In supersymmetric models with right-handed neutrinos where the neutrino masses are purely Dirac-type, right-handed sneutrino is an interesting candidate of the lightest superparticle (LSP). Here we discuss the possibility that right-handed-sneutrino-LSP becomes dark matter of the universe. ©...

    Starting around 2013, data from the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) will be analyzed for a wide range of phenomena. By separately tracing the development of mass structure and rate of expansion of the universe, these data will address the physics of dark matter and dark energy, the...

    It is still a challenging problem to the theoretical physicists to know the exact nature of the galactic dark matter which causes the galactic rotational velocity to be more or less a constant. We have proposed that the dark matter as an effect of f( T) gravity. Assuming the flat rotation curves...

    The article discusses the search by astrophysicists and particle physicists for dark matter. Dark matter is thought to pervade the universe, its existence inferred based on its gravitational effects. The focus of the article is research by Jin Chang and his colleagues who used a high-altitude...
