**Cosmology and Dark Matter**

by V. A. Rubakov

**Publisher**: arXiv 2019**Number of pages**: 76

**Description**:

Theoretical hypotheses on the nature of the dark matter particles are numerous, so we concentrate on several well motivated candidates, such as WIMPs, axions and sterile neutrinos, and also give examples of less motivated and more elusive candidates such as fuzzy dark matter. This gives an idea of the spectrum of conceivable dark matter candidates, while certainly not exhausting it.
