Structure Formation in the Dark Component (15'+5')
Structure formation in the dark component of the universe is now a well-
established branch of theoretical 
astrophysics, providing detailed models of the dark matter distribution on a wide 
range of scales. In the linear 
regime these models have largely been confirmed, by observations of 
gravitational lensing, galaxy clustering, and 
other tests. In the non-linear regime some uncertainties and controversies 
remain, both on the theoretical side and 
on the observational side. I will review the highlights of the theory and discuss 
the main points of controversy - the 
central slope of dark matter halos, the variation of halo properties with mass or 
other variables, the survival of 
substructure within halos, and the small-scale distribution of dark matter - with 
particular reference to direct and 
indirect detection experiments.
