Title: Composite strongly interacting dark matter

Abstract: It has been suggested that cold dark matter has difficulties in explaining tentative evidence for noncuspy halo profiles in small galaxies, and the low velocity dispersions observed in the largest Milky Way satellites ("too big to fail" problem). Strongly self-interacting dark matter has been noted as a robust solution to these problems. The elastic cross sections required are much larger than predicted by generic CDM models, but could naturally be of the right size if dark matter is composite. I will present a general way on constraining models where strongly interacting CDM is in the form of dark "atoms" or "molecules", or bound states of a confining gauge interaction ("hadrons").
