Speaker

Mr Manoj Kaplinghat (UC Irvine)

Description

I will discuss superWIMP dark matter models and differentiate their predictions from that of WIMP dark matter, focusing on the differences in the BBN era and for small-scale structure formation. I will draw some generic lessons for the connection between the particle properties of dark matter and structure of dark matter on sub-galactic scales and discuss present status and future observations that aim to discern this structure.
