    • Advancing Techniques for Detecting Dwarf Satellite Populations Beyond the Local Group 

      Xi, Chengyu (University of Waterloo, 2022-05-20)
      This thesis includes material from three papers that develop techniques for quantifying faint dwarf satellite populations outside the Local Group. Dwarf satellites are important for our understanding of small-scale structure ...
    • Cosmology with Cluster Structural Properties 

      Amoura, Yuba (University of Waterloo, 2023-06-23)
      Galaxy clusters are massive objects composed of hundreds or thousands of galaxies, hot gas and an extended dark matter (DM) halo. They are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the Universe. As such, they result ...
    • Dark Matter and Neutrinos in the Foggy Universe 

      Okoli, Chiamaka (University of Waterloo, 2019-01-07)
      Dark matter is predicted to be the main contribution to the matter content in the universe, in addition to ordinary baryonic matter such as protons and neutrons. However, we are limited in our knowledge of the nature of ...
    • The Evolution of Dark Matter Haloes in Mergers 

      Drakos, Nicole (University of Waterloo, 2019-08-22)
      In the standard Λ-cold dark matter (ΛCDM) cosmological model, the present-day universe contains dominant components of dark energy (Λ) and cold dark matter (CDM). Fluctuations in the initial distribution of dark matter ...
    • The Evolution of Subhalo Orbits in Galaxy Clusters 

      de Luna, Jedri (University of Waterloo, 2023-10-23)
      Galaxies and their dark matter structures are commonly found within larger-scale structures called galaxy clusters. These clusters exhibit unique conditions to their constituent galaxies, as they have an elevated density ...
