Fabio Iocco (IAP Paris):

"Dark Matter annihilation and the first stars"

Abstract. I will describe how the energetic shower produced by annihilating dark matter can affect the formation, and possibly the life of the first stars to form in the Universe. Using first principles and simple estimates I will motivate the interest in popular dark matter models (thermally produced WIMPs) for these peculiar mechanisms.
