Limits on Wimps from Globular Cluster Stars
We describe how the Weakly Interacting Massive particles (WIMPs) which have been suggested as a solution to the solar neutrino problem might affect the evolution of globular cluster stars. We show that even at this preliminary stage of our investigation the possible range of WIMP parameters is severely limited.
