Spherical infall models were introduced by Gunn & Gott (1972), Gott (1975), and Gunn (1977) to provide a simple theoretical framework for understanding the formation of dark matter halos.
On Universal Halos and the Radial Orbit Instability
In this paper, we investigate the gap between the self-similar infall models and the cosmological simulations.
On Universal Halos and the Radial Orbit Instability
The outline of the paper is as follows: In Section 2, we review essential results from the self-similar infall models, Dehnen’s “merging theorem” for cuspy halos, and the ROI.
On Universal Halos and the Radial Orbit Instability
Early attempts to understand cosmological structure formation were based on the spherical infall model (Gunn & Gott 1972; Gott 1975; Gunn 1977) in which matter from the cosmic background accretes slowly onto a smooth, spherically symmetric density perturbation.
On Universal Halos and the Radial Orbit Instability
The implications of this modification in the context of the spherical infall model were explored by Ryden & Gunn (1987).
On Universal Halos and the Radial Orbit Instability
Sikivie, Tkachev, & Wang (1997), Nusser (2001), Le Delliou & Henriksen (2003), and Ascasibar et al. (2004) include angular momentum into the infall model while preserving self-similarity and spherical symmetry.
On Universal Halos and the Radial Orbit Instability
The ROI drives a transition in the inner regions from the self-similar radial infall solutions to a stable state with isotropic velocities and a softer cusp.
On Universal Halos and the Radial Orbit Instability
Thus the ROI is a candidate for the basic collective relaxation mechanism that takes steep self-similar infall cusps to the inner NFW behaviour.
On Universal Halos and the Radial Orbit Instability
To estimate the present-day DM temperature we consider galactic DM and use the gravitational infall velocity, assuming a Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution in galactic DM velocities, to determine that the root-mean-square velocity obeys vrms/c = p3kB T /M c2 .
