Recent important observations on dark matter for an undergrad research

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

I would love some suggestions about my undergraduate research, thought it may be improper to ask here. I apology if I break the group rules.

My undergraduate research topic is dark matter. My plan so far is to study important observations before making other progress.

I have found an interesting review paper on observation about rotation curve by Yoshiaki Sofue and Vera Rubin http://arxiv.org/abs/astro-ph/0010594

However, it was written ten years ago, therefore, I would like to know if there are any other recent important observations on dark matter within the past ten years.

Moreover, there were two interesting observation in this week, one suggested about the actual mass of dark matter is half what we had thought by The University of Western Australia(http://phys.org/news/2014-10-dark-thought-scientists.html); another one was about claiming "direct" observation on dark matter by University of Leicester (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2797310/dark-matter-particles-finally-coming-core-sun.html)

If you have studied these paper, I would love to listen to your opinion on this.

Also, I would love to listen to any suggestions on undergraduate research or even research!

Thanks for your reading, Best wishes, Shing
