Description

In this talk I will present recent progress on the study of dark matter models where gravitationally captured dark matter can self-annihilate inside a dense star (neutron star) and subsequently produce changes in the microscopic matter conditions. Depending on selected dark candidate
mass and interaction cross-section to nucleons this fact could lead to a new mechanism to form even denser stars.
