CCAPP Seminar: Matthew Walker (CMU) "Dark Matter in the Smallest Galaxies"

October 29, 2018
Tuesday, March 28, 2017 - 11:30am to 12:30pm
PRB 4138
Oval

The Milky Way's dwarf-galactic satellites include the nearest, smallest, darkest and most chemically primitive galaxies known. I will summarize recent results -- and present new ones -- regarding the amount and spatial distribution of dark matter within these systems. I will discuss implications for two lines of inquiry regarding the nature of dark matter: 1) tests of the standard 'cold dark matter' model of cosmic structure formation, and 2) searches for dark matter annihilation/decay signals.
