High Energy Theory Seminar

"Dark Matter — or What?"

Presented by Sabine Hossenfelder, Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, Germany

Tuesday, April 9, 2019, 11:00 am — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

In this talk I will explain (a) what observations speak for the hypothesis of dark matter, (b) what observations speak for the hypothesis of modified gravity, and (c) why it is a mistake to insist that either hypothesis on its own must explain all the available data. The right explanation, I will argue, is instead a suitable combination of dark matter and modified gravity, which can be realized by the idea that dark matter has a super fluid phase.
