Dark matter at the high mass frontier

04/08/2021 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s): 
Joseph Bramante (Queens University/Art Macdonald Institute)
Type of Event (for grouping events):

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.
