CDM versus WDM
Distribution of dark matter particles inside a sphere of 400 kpc/h radius for a halo with a maximum circular velocity of about 240 km/sec. Left: the halo in a flat Lambda CDM model . Right: the halo in a warm dark matter model with a warmom mass of about 1 keV. Note that the amount of substructure is significatively reduced in the latter case. We have color-coded DM particles on blue scale according to the log of the local density (we use a pgplot program kindly provided by A. Kravstsov).
Research areas: chemical evolution and cosmology (n-body simulations)
