Special Issue "keV Warm Dark Matter (ΛWDM) in Agreement with Observations in Tribute to Héctor J. De Vega"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2021).
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Research into keV warm dark matter (WDM) is progressing fast. The subject is new and essentially works, naturally reproducing astronomical observations over all scales, from small and intermediate galactic scales to large (cosmological) scales (ΛWDM). Astronomical evidence that Cold Dark Matter (CDM) and its proposed tailored baryonic cures/recipes do not work at the small and galactic scales is staggering.
This Special Issue addresses the clarifying and impressive progress made in keV warm dark matter galaxies in agreement with observations. In the tradition of the Chalonge–de Vega School, an effort of clarification and synthesis is made by combining theory, analysis, observation, and numerical simulation results in a conceptual framework. This Special Issue aims to put together astrophysical, cosmological, particle, and nuclear keV WDM research—including models and experimental searches, theory, and analytical and numerical frameworks— that reproduces astronomical and cosmic observations at all scales.
We invite our colleagues to submit their works to this Special Issue in Tribute to Héctor J. de Vega https://chalonge-devega.fr/HdeV.html.
Mini-reviews can be submitted as well. All submitted papers must include clear purposes, results, and clear conclusions.
This collection of papers will thus register the exciting ongoing theoretical and experimental developments in (i) the search for the leading keV WDM particle candidates and (ii) the impact of keV WDM astrophysics (including its signatures and constraints with high-redshift galaxies and clusters, cosmic recombination, 21 cm line, and implications for star formation) with or for the JWST, HST, SKA, X-ray astronomy, gravitational lensing, and other astronomical observations, as well as news from KATRIN, ECHo, and other experiments.
Exciting keV WDM work to perform is ahead of us.
Prof. Dr. Norma G. Sanchez
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Universe is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
