Speaker

Prof. Matthew Walker (CMU)

Description

The Local Group's dwarf galaxies represent the lower limit of galaxy formation. Inferences about the amount and spatial distribution of dark matter within these objects has can provide tests of cosmological models and predictions for indirect detection experiments. I will summarize current observational constraints and discuss prospects for improvement.
