Hello all,

I'm trying to do some research on dark matter and its effect on globular structures for my undergrad research project. I'm having difficulties gettin the ball rolling and need some help on where to look for journal papers on the topic.

Unfortunately the professor that I will be working under has been out of town for a while and I'm very excited to get started on this as soon as possible. Could you all point me in the right direction and/or supply me with a website or database that I can use for the research portion of my project?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The main working database for cosmology, astrophysics, and particle physics is the SPIRES database at Stanford:

You can enter a search string to locate authors, keywords, etc. For a search on papers with Dark Matter in the title, you should type: 'find t dark matter' (the t denotes 'topic'). Of course, such a search will return tons and tons of hits. You can wade through and look for review articles -- these are probably your best bet and will likely be at a level more appropriate to an undergrad project. Another option is to perform a google search for something like "dark matter review article" or the like.

Globular clusters, for some odd reason, appear almost totally devoid of dark matter.

Great! Thank you for the help!

During our physics colloquium last semester we had a gentleman from the Harvard Center for Astrophysics give a presentation on dark matter. His name is Douglas Finkbeiner and here is a link to one of his papers concerning dark matter. He has written several others which can be found searching for him. Hope that helps. Chronos, do you have any articles referring to globular clusters being devoid of dark matter? That sounds interesting.

This is another interesting paper written by a different author.
