Physics - High Energy Physics Seminar

The model of superfluid dark matter tries to address the problems of cold dark matter on small scales, while reproducing its success on large scales. In this talk I will review the model, based on the existence of sub-eV particles with repulsive self-interactions, which are able to generate a superfluid core in galaxies. Then, I will discuss its various phenomenological implications, including the behavior around black holes and dynamical friction.
