LEPP Theory Seminar: Joseph Bramante, Perimiter Institute

Finding Dark Matter withNeutron Star Mergers and Thermal Emission

Abstract: Asymmetric dark matter could be found using the locations of neutron star mergers in galaxies, and by observing a new type of astrophysical event, a “quiet kilonova”.  In addition, thermal emission from nearby pulsars can explore dark matter-nucleon scattering with a precision that exceeds any planned direct detection experiment.
