  • The Relic Abundance of Dark Matter and Indirect Detection¬†¬†

    By Abigail Swanson¬† Faculty mentor: Dr. Desmond Villalba 2:00-2:50pm, HCC 329 We analyzed the total relic abundance of dark matter using the Boltzmann equation over the course of three different time periods. Overall, we found that regardless of the model used for mass values of dark matter and thermal cross-section the relic abundance remains constant…
