Formation of solitonic stars through gravitational cooling

Edward Seidel, Wai Mo Suen

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We studied the formation of compact bosonic objects through a dissipationless cooling mechanism. Implications of the existence of this mechanism are discussed, including the abundance of bosonic stars in the Universe, and the possibility of ruling out the axion as a dark matter candidate.
