The Chalonge de Vega Meudon Workshop 2016

Warm Dark Matter Astrophysics in Agreement with Observations and keV Sterile Neutrinos

Place: CIAS Chateau de Meudon, Observatoire de Paris at Meudon

Dates: 15, 16 and 17 June 2016


Registration and call for papers on Warm Dark Matter is Open.

Early registration is strongly encouradged.

So far, not a single valid objection arose against WDM.

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. WDM solves naturally the problems of CDM and CDM + baryons , provides the same large scale and CMB results than ΛCDM and agrees with the observations at the galactic and small scales.

Warm Dark Matter (WDM) is hot topic in galaxies and cosmology and implies novelties in the astrophysical, cosmological, particle physics and nuclear physics context. Warm Dark Matter Cosmology (LambdaWDM) is more complete, correct and general theory than Cold Dark Matter (LambdaCDM) since it reproduces LambdaCDM at large scales and solves all the problems of CDM at small and intermediate scales.

This workshop addresses the last progresses in WDM, including its distribution function and equation of state, the quantum mechanical framework to galaxy structure reproducing 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.

The recent impact of WDM astrophysics, its signatures and constraints with high redshift galaxies, clusters, cosmic recombinantion, 21 cm, with or for the JWST, HST, SKA, AstroH and gravitationnal lensing will be treated.

Looking forward to Welcome you in Meudon at the Workshop
