3Q: Enectali Figueroa-Feliciano on possible hints of dark matter

Physicists operating an underground experiment in Minnesota reported last week that they have found possible hints of dark matter. The Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (CDMS) experiment detected three events with…

Astrophysics Colloquium — The Dark Side of Dark Matter

know about dark matter comes from astronomy, most of the effort now to characterize dark matter is focused on non-gravitational interactions between dark matter and standard-model particles. However, dark matter

Flavor-Mixed Dark Matter (Speaker: Mikhail Medvedev, University of Kansas)

Abstract: The nature of dark matter is unknown. A number of dark matter candidates are quantum flavor-mixed particles but this property has never been accounted for in cosmology. In this…
