Guest Speaker: Mark Wise (Caltech)

Talk Title: "Dark Matter Bound States and Indirect Dark Matter Signals"


Dark Matter and its antiparticle may form bound states analogous to the positronium states that an electron and positron form. I discuss how taking such bound states into account changes (in some regions of parameter space) our expectations for the dark matter annihilation rate at the time of recombination and today.
