Event: 'Dark Side Dynamics: UDM Models With Fast Transition'

CENTRA Seminars
Date: Thursday, December 17, 2009 At 11:00 AM
Duration: 1 Hour


Marco Bruni  (Institute of Cosmology and gravitation - University of Portsmouth)



In this talk I first discuss some general properties of Unified Dark Matter (UDM) models.
Using as an example models with an affine equation of state (EoS) I show how in general
UDM models need to be extremely close to the standard LCDM model in order to be viable.
The main problem is that the effective speed of sound - governing the Jeans length of the
perturbations - needs to be extremely small, otherwise perturbations become incompatible
with CMB and matter power spectra. In the second part of the talk I show how this problem
can be avoided by UDM models with a fast transition. I will then introduce a
phenomenological toy model and show that -  for a wide range of parameter values -

UDM models with a fast transition can fit the CMB and matter power spectra.
