The main goal of this project is to broaden the present understanding of the relaxation process (violent relaxation) in dark matter halos and collisionless self-gravitating systems in general, as well as to characterize, with simple theoretical models, the stationary state achieved at the end of this process. This study will use numerical siulation data, generated with the code GADGET-2...
There are different models for the density profiles and velocity fields of galactic dark matter halos. Some of them were proposed to adjust the profiles obtained in numerical simulations of structure formation, specially the NFW profile, although without theoretical justification. Recently, some explanations for these profiles from first principles have been proposed, taking in account ...
The main objective of this project is to constrain the Galactic (especially the dark matter halo) potential making use of accurate 3 dimensional positions and velocities (phase space coordinates) of millions of stars in the stellar halo provided by the Gaia survey and a ground based spectroscopic survey (DESI). The availability of accurate phase space coordinates can yield orbits for th...
