Weighing the Universe - Princeton University

WEIGHING THE UNIVERSE Neta A. Bahcall Princeton University Why Weigh Universe? How much matter in Universe? Is there Dark-Matter? Where is it located? Is there Non-baryonic (exotic) dark-matter? What is it? [Baryon limit is ~4-5% of critical-density.] Most fundamental cosmological parameter

1. M/L flattens on large-scales: M ~ L. End of Dark Matter. 2. Sp + E produce M/L of groups, clusters; Clusters have no excess DM ! 3. Most of the DM is in huge halos around galaxies (few-100 Kpc)
