Abstract

Dynamical dark matter (DDM) is a new framework for dark-matter physics in which the dark sector comprises an ensemble of individual constituent fields, and in which the usual requirement of dark-matter stability is replaced by a balancing between constituent lifetimes and cosmological abundances across the ensemble as a whole. In this article, we introduce the DDM framework, discuss the general equation of state for dark matter in this new framework, and outline some of its related cosmological implications.
