    The DAMA/LIBRA set-up (about 250 kg highly radiopure NaI(Tl) sensitive mass) is running at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory of the I.N.F.N.. The first DAMA/LIBRA results confirm the evidence for the presence of a Dark Matter particle component in the galactic halo, as pointed out by the former...

    We show that the standard model extended to include Weyl’s symmetry as a local symmetry and an additional neutral scalar singlet can account for the puzzles pertaining to inflation, dark matter, and dark energy of the universe. The distinct signature of the Weylon is that it has either no...

  • Phantom Energy with Variable G and Λ. Arbab, Arbab I. // AIP Conference Proceedings;4/17/2009, Vol. 1115 Issue 1, p230 

    We have investigated a cosmological model of a phantom energy with a variable cosmo-logical constant (Λ) depending on the energy density (ρ) as Λ∝ρ-α, α = const. and a variable gravitational constant (G). The model requires α<0 and a negative gravitational constant....

    We review the unification of early-time inflation with late-time acceleration in several local modified gravity models which pass Solar System and cosmological tests. It is also demonstrated that account of non-local gravitational corrections to the action does not destroy the possibility of...

    The mechanism behind electroweak symmetry breaking (EWSB) and the nature of dark matter (DM) are currently very important issues in particle physics. Usually, in most models, these two issues are not or poorly connected. However, since a natural dark matter candidate is a weakly interacting...

  • Cosmic enlightenment. Clark, Stuart // New Scientist;3/8/2008, Vol. 197 Issue 2646, p28 

    The article reports how experiments are attempting to identify dark matter. According to cosmological theories, dark matter is made of hypothetical particles called weakly interacting massive particles (WIMP). It provides a background on the discovery of the dark matter. It adds that...

  • The equivalence between different Dark (matter) energy scenarios. Arbab, Arbab I. // Astrophysics & Space Science;2004, Vol. 291 Issue 2, p141 

    We have shown that the phenomenological models with a cosmological constant of the type Λ=β(\frac{\ddot R}{R}) and Λ=3αH2, where R is the scale factor of the universe and H is the Hubble constant, are equivalent to a quintessence model with a scalar (φ) potential...

P. // AIP Conference Proceedings;3/26/2010, Vol. 1223 Issue 1, p33 

    On the 15th of June 2006, the PAMELA satellite-borne experiment was launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome and it has been collecting data since July 2006. The instrument allows precision studies of the charged cosmic radiation to be conducted over a wide energy range (100 MeV–100’s...

    The impact of a kination-dominated (KD) phase generated by a quintessential exponential model on the thermal abundance of Supersymmetric (SUSY) extremely Weekly Interacting Massive Particles (e-WIMPs) is investigated. For values of the quintessential energy-density parameter at the eve of...
