The Distribution of Dark Matter in the Galactic Halo

The main predictions from cosmological simulations about distribution of dark matter in the galactic halo will be reviewed briefly. The main focusing will be on the standard Lambda Cold Dark Matter model, but some alternatives like warm and mixed dark matter will be discussed as well. The predictions from the simulations will be compared to observations of dwarf galaxies and their implications for dark matter detection will also be presented.
