Author(s): Dror, JA; Kuflik, E; Melcher, B; Watson, S | Abstract: © 2018 authors. Published by the American Physical Society. We study the cosmological consequences of codecaying dark matter - a recently proposed mechanism for depleting the density of dark matter through the decay of nearly degenerate particles. A generic prediction of this framework is an early dark matter dominated phase in the history of the Universe, that results in the enhanced growth of dark matter perturbations on small scales. We compute the duration of the early matter dominated phase and show that the perturbations are robust against washout from free streaming. The enhanced small-scal...
