Summary: ULB Seminar: James Unwin - "Cores in Dwarf Galaxies from Fermi Repulsion"
Description: Cold dark matter provides a remarkably good description of cosmology
and astrophysics. However, observations connected with small scales
might be in tension with this framework. In particular, structure
formation simulations suggest that the density profiles of dwarf
spheroidal galaxies should exhibit cusps, in contrast to observations.
I will show that Fermi repulsion can explain the observed cored
density profiles in dwarf galaxies for sub-keV fermionic dark matter.
While in conventional dark matter scenarios, such sub-keV thermal dark
matter would be excluded by free streaming bounds, I will argue that
these constraints are ameliorated in models with dark matter at lower
temperature than conventional thermal scenarios. Finally, I will
outline a class in which the dark matter typically has a lower
temperature than the thermal expectation, dubbed Flooded Dark Matter,
and discuss aspects of model building.
