Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
that at least half explode from sub-Chandrasekhar mass progenitor
white dwarfs. This talk explains how asymmetric dark matter would
ignite white dwarfs, and form star-destroying black holes inside old
neutron stars inhabiting regions densely populated with dark matter.
Links between dark matter and the anomalously high heavy metal
abundance of Reticulum II will also be discussed.
