Presentation

The LPT is based at the University of Toulouse. It has been founded in 1991 and its administrative structure was established in 2003. Before 2003, researchers where rassembled in the Group of Theoretical Physics. This group was hosted by the Laboratoire de Physique Quantique (now LCPQ).

The LPT is member of IRSAMC (The Institute of Research on Complex Atomic and Molecular Systems).

[hal-03022679] Jeans mass-radius relation of self-gravitating Bose-Einstein condensates and typical parameters of the dark matter particle

 (25/11/2020)  
We study the Jeans mass-radius relation of Bose-Einstein condensate dark matter in Newtonian gravity. We show at a general level that it is similar to the mass-radius relation of Bose-Einstein condensate dark matter halos [P.H. Chavanis, Phys. Rev. D {\bf 84}, 043531 (2011)]. Bosons with a repulsive self-interaction generically evolve from the Thomas-Fermi regime to the noninteracting regime as the Universe expands. In the Thomas-Fermi regime, the Jeans radius remains approximately constant while the Jeans mass decreases. In the noninteracting regime, the Jeans radius increases while the Jeans mass decreases. Bosons with an attractive self-interaction generically evolve from the nongravitational regime to the noninteracting regime as the Universe expands. In the nongravitational regime, the Jeans radius and the Jeans mass increase. In the noninteracting regime, the Jeans radius increases while the Jeans mass decreases. The transition occurs at a maximum Jeans mass which is similar to the maximum mass of Bose-Einstein condensate dark matter halos with an attractive self-interaction. We use the mass-radius relation of dark matter halos and the observational evidence of a ``minimum halo'' (with typical radius $R\sim 1\, {\rm kpc}$ and typical mass $M\sim 10^8\, M_{\odot}$) to constrain the mass $m$ and the scattering length $a_s$ of the dark matter particle.
