A is for Axion (in the Alphabet of Bsm Curiosities)
  OKC colloquia

Tuesday 17 February 2015
from 13:15 to 15:00
at FA31
Speaker : Sacha Davidson (Lyon)
Abstract : The QCD axion is a curious Dark Matter candidate, having a mass like the neutrino, but behaving as Cold Dark Matter. I will review how this occurs, and discuss the interesting question of whether WIMPs could be distinguished from axions with Large Scale Structure data. Sadly I do not have an answer, which would require simulating galaxy formation in the presence of classical field dark matter.
