Dark Matter, Black Holes and Fast Radio Bursts

Adviser: Ely Kovetz

Student: קרן קרוצ'ק


The possibility that part of the dark matter is made of massive halo objects (MACHOs) remains poorly constrained over a wide range of masses partly since we do not yet have enough measurements to apply constraint found by analyzing strong gravitational lensing of extragalactic fast radio bursts (FRBs) by MACHOs with sufficient certainty.
We will try to lower the number of measurements necessary (from ~ 1000) to the number of measurements available today (~100) and recalculate the constraints by focusing on repeting FRBs with strong gravitational lensing by MACHOs
