Capture of dark matter by the solar system. Analytical estimates

Research outputpeer-review

Abstract

We consider the capture of galactic dark matter by the Solar System, due to the gravitational three-body interaction of the Sun, a planet, and a dark matter particle. Closed (up to an overall numerical factor) analytical expression is derived for the capture cross-section. With this result we arrive at simple estimates for density and velocity distribution of captured dark matter particles close to the Earth.
