Abstract content

Self-interacting dark matter provides an interesting alternative dark matter candidate. In my talk I will motivate self-interacting dark matter models from an astrophysical perspective demonstrating their impact on structure formation on galactic scales. I will also discuss first attempts of simulating inelastic models of self-interacting dark matter and show how their impact on structure formation differs from commonly employed elastic models.
