Centre for Particle Theory Colloquia: Inaugural lecture: How far are we from probing the idea that dark matter is made of particles?

Presented by Celine Boehm, Durham University

22 May 2012 16:00 in CLC202

The last 15 years in observational Cosmology have been extremely fruitful with key measurements such as the determination of the abundance of invisible matter (the so-called 'dark' matter) in our Universe today. Yet the main issues of Cosmology remain unsolved. In particular the nature of dark matter and dark energy is still mysterious despite strong evidence for their existence. In this talk, I will review some of the progress made in the field of dark matter to identify its nature and summarise the main challenges that need to be tackled to determine what the dark matter is made of.
