MPhil Thesis Presentation Seminar - A Survey of Dark Matter Physics
A survey has been conducted on the subject of dark matter. This work has been carried out to be a foundation for future original theoretical work, a proposed project to model dark matter using a modified form of the quantum foam idea first postulated by the late John A. Wheeler in the 20th century. It is understood that there is a possibility that the existence of dark matter could be due to some breakdown in Einstein’s Generality Relativity. Resolving this issue will have the potential to reconcile the non-renormalizability of space-time with the Standard Model. In this survey, we will examine the (1) evidence for dark matter, (2) dark matter candidates, and (3) the global detection of dark matter currently being conducted. An emphasis will be placed on the recent findings of the Fermi-LAT collaboration, based on the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) observations of the gamma-ray excess originating in the Milky Way’s Galactic Center (GC).
