"The structure of the universe as a link between cosmology and dark matter physics"

Cosmological structure formation gives rise to a distribution of dark matter that is set by the complex processes of non-linear collapse. Dark matter searches are inextricably linked to the details of this cosmological structure formation. I will review how large scale structure gives rise to our present expectations for the dark matter particle, and how experimentally-motivated theorists try to bridge the gap between fundamental cosmological ideas and dark matter detection experiments.
