Microhalos and dark matter detection

Schneider, Aurel; Krauss, Lawrence; Moore, Ben


Cosmological structure formation predicts that our galactic halo contains an enormous hierarchy of substructures and streams, the remnants of the merging hierarchy that began with tiny Earth mass microhalos. If these structures persist until the present time, they could influence dramatically the detection signatures of weakly interacting elementary particle dark matter (WIMP). Using numerical simulations that follow the tidal disruption within the Galactic potential and heating from stellar...[Show more]
