ASP Online Seminars: Looking for Imprints of Microphysics on Large Scale Structure


Join Zoom Meeting

Meeting ID: 951 9356 7359


In this talk, I will describe my efforts to understand the nature of the mysterious dark matter. I provide an overview of the general problem and then describe my current approach to it, which is to characterize the behavior of a proposed dark matter particle, the axion. I will give some insight into how I am using a range of tools — model building, computation, and high energy astrophysics -- to get at the basic question of “what is the statistical mechanics of axion dark matter?”
