Dark energy and dark matter comprise 96 percent of the total mass of the universe. Two main hypotheses about the nature of dark matter are presently debated. One posits that dark matter consists of massive compact halo objects; the other ascribes this property to weakly interacting mass particles.

Professor Alexander Balakin and Ph.D. candidate Dmitry Groshev support the second viewpoint, but note that it's probable that dark matter comprises axions, pseudo-Goldstone bosons capable of interacting with photons.

Dmitry - Groshev - Trait - Axion - Electrodynamics

Dmitry Groshev says, "The interesting trait of axion electrodynamics is that modified electromagnetism equations allow for the existence of effects that would not be possible in the classic Faraday-Maxwell theory. One such effect is the emergence of axion dyons, objects with parallel radially oriented electric and magnetic fields."

Dyon magnetospheres can exhibit the Pannekoek-Rosseland effect. The essence of the phenomenon is that spatial distribution of...
