Analysis Seminar

Title: On Dark Matter, Spiral Galaxies, and the Axioms of General Relativity
Speaker: Hubert Bray
Speaker Info: Duke University
Brief Description:
Special Note:

There is thought to be five times more dark matter in the universe than regular baryonic matter represented by the periodic table. Also, most of the mass of galaxies is dark matter. What is the nature of dark matter? Does dark matter have something to do with spiral structure in galaxies? We will discuss a geometric modification of the axioms of general relativity with the goal of making connections to these two important problems in astrophysics.
