Description
The currently favoured Lambda-Cold-Dark-Matter (ΛCDM) cosmological model makes specific predictions about the abundance, structure and clustering of dark matter halos (DMHs), the sites where galaxies form. These predictions are accurate at describing large scale observations. On smaller scales, the agreement between ΛCDM and observations of dwarf galaxies is unclear because (i) the structure of DMHs depends on particularities of different galaxy formation models, and (ii) observations of dwarfs suffer from sizable uncertainties. Is ΛCDM successful on small scales? A definite answer to this major open question may either reveal the nature of DM or change dramatic...
