HET Seminar

"The Primordial Black Holes Variations"

Presented by Stefano Profumo, UC Santa Cruz

Thursday, January 12, 2023, 11:00 am — Hybrid:Bldg. 510, Small Seminar Room

Abstract: In the age of gravitational wave astronomy and direct black hole imaging, the possibility that some of the black holes in the universe have a primordial, rather than stellar origin, and that they might be a non-negligible fraction of the cosmological dark matter, is quite intriguing. I will review the status of the field, and comment on search strategies and future prospects for detection across many decades in black hole mass. I will also discuss how light primordial black holes could seed both baryonic and particle dark matter in the very early universe.
