34. The observed properties of dark matter on small astrophysical scales, and the number of small satellites
New dynamical studies and discovery searches for the smallest dark matter dominated galaxies will be presented. Dark matter in dSph galaxies has a mean volume mass density within the stellar distribution which always has a very low value of about 5GeV/c^2 cm^-3. The mass profiles appear cored, not cusped as predicted by Cold DM models. Galaxies are embedded in dark matter halos with...
