Primordial Black Holes as Dark Matter and Generators of Cosmic Structure

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Proceedings book series (ASSSP, volume 56)

Abstract

Primordial black holes (PBHs) could provide the dark matter but a variety of constraints restrict the possible mass windows to \(10^{16}{-}10^{17}\) g, \(10^{20}{-}10^{24}\) g and \(10{-}10^3M_{\odot }\). The last possibility is of special interest in view of the recent detection of black hole mergers by LIGO. PBHs larger than \(10^3 M_{\odot }\) might have important cosmological consequences even if they have only a small fraction of the dark matter density. In particular, they could generate cosmological structures either individually through the ‘seed’ effect or collectively through the ‘Poisson’ effect, thereby alleviating some problems associated with the standard cold dark matter scenario.

Notes

Acknowledgements

This talk is dedicated to the memory of my friend and mentor Stephen Hawking. If PBHs turn out to exist, then his pioneering work on this topic will have been one of his most prescient and important scientific contributions. I thank the Simons Foundation for their generous hospitality at this conference and my many PBH coathors over 45  years for an enjoyable collaboration.
