The Chalonge School Meudon Workshop 2015 Warm Dark Matter Cosmology in agreement with observations: CMB, Galaxies, Black holes, and Sterile Neutrinos

SUMMARY: Warm Dark Matter (WDM) is hot topic in galaxies cosmology and implies novelties in the astrophysical, cosmologicalparticle and nuclear physics context. Warm Dark Matter Cosmology (LWDM) gives the same successfull large scale results and CMB results than Cold Dark Matter (LCDM) and succesfully agrees with the observations at the galactic and small scales.

A Turning Point operated recently in the Dark Matter research: Warm Dark Matter (WDM) emerged impressively over Cold Dark Matter (CDM) as the leading Dark Matter candidate. Astronomical evidence that Cold Dark Matter (LambdaCDM) and its proposed tailored baryonic cures do not work at small scales is staggering.

This workshop addresses the last developpements in WDM, including its distribution function and equation of state, the quantum mechanical framework to galaxy structure reproducing in particular the observed galaxy cores and their sizes and the dwarf galaxies.

This workshop puts together astrophysical, cosmological, particle and nuclear WDM, astronomical observations, theory and WDM analytical and numerical frameworks which reproduce the observations.

The Workshop addresses as well the theorical and experimental search for the leading WDM particle candidate: keV sterile neutrinos.

Registration is Open. Early registration is strongly encouradged.
