    The article discusses the debate over whether dark matter is needed to explain the structure of the galaxies. It has been proposed that dark matter explains why spiral galaxies are not torn apart by their rapid rotation. Cosmologists believe that the gravitational forced exerted by some kind of...

    We point out that thermal relic abundance of dark matter is strongly altered by a non-perturbative effect called the Sommerfeld enhancement, when constituent particles of the dark matter are SU(2)L non-singlet and much heavier than the weak gauge bosons. Typical candidates are the heavy wino and...

    The article focuses on the discrepancies in the deepest and clearest maps of the Universe's skeleton of dark matter structure which presents a picture in accordance with favored models. Undiscovered elementary particles are believed to comprise dark matter. There are evidences for structure made...

    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...

    The article reports that physicists have reassessed the reasons for making the hypothetical neutralino particle the best candidate to explain dark matter, which is thought to compose 90% of the universe's mass. A radical rethinking of theories on dark matter can be prompted by the discovery that...

    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 outline why galactic outflows preferentially remove low angular momentum material, and show that this is a natural result when structure forms in a cold dark matter cosmology. The driving factors are the fact that the mean angular momentum of accreted material increases with time, the...

    In other conference research papers, Beckwith obtained a maximum DM mass/energy value of up to 5 TeV, as opposed to 400 GeV for DM, which may mean more convertible power for a dark matter ram jet. The consequences are from assuming that axions are CDM, and KK gravitons are for WDM, then...

    The article presents information on the contents of dark matter. Astronomers at the University of Cambridge made detailed observations of 12 dwarf galaxies near the Milky Way to calculate how much dark matter must be holding them together. They found that dark matter clumps together in building...
