Dark matter at the high mass frontier

Tuesday April 6, 2021
2:00 pm

 Presenter:  Dr. Joseph Bramante (Queen's University)
 Series:  Nuclear, Particle, Astroparticle and Cosmology (NUPAC) Seminars
 Abstract:  As the search for dark matter continues, a growing number of theories predict that dark matter is a supermassive particle or composite state. Discovering dark matter at this high mass extreme requires new approaches. I will survey some recent developments, including dark matter that forms black holes in the sun and earth, dark matter that would make old white dwarfs explode, and supermassive dark matter detected through its fusion of nuclei in Antarctic ice.
 Host:  Francis-Yan Cyr-Racine
 Location:  Zoom
