Cascades, Order and UltrafiltersJan 10 2012We investigate mutual behavior of cascades, contours of which are contained in a fixed ultrafilter. Using that relation we prove (ZFC) that the class of strict $J_{\omega^\omega}$-ultrafilters, introduced by J. E. Baumgartner in \textit{Ultrafilters on ... More

The Sommerfeld enhancement for scalar particles and application to sfermion co-annihilation regionsFeb 21 2011Apr 13 2011We study the impact of the Sommerfeld enhancement on the thermal relic density of the lightest neutralino in the case of large co-annihilation effects with a scalar particle. The proper way of including the Sommerfeld effect in this case is discussed, ... More
