# Scalar field dark matter: behavior around black holes

@article{CruzOsorio2011ScalarFD, title={Scalar field dark matter: behavior around black holes}, author={Alejandro Cruz-Osorio and F. S. Guzm{\'a}n and Fabio D. Lora-Clavijo}, journal={Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics}, year={2011}, volume={2011}, pages={029-029} }

We present the numerical evolution of a massive test scalar fields around a Schwarzschild space-time. We proceed by using hyperboloidal slices that approach future null infinity, which is the boundary of scalar fields, and also demand the slices to penetrate the event horizon of the black hole. This approach allows the scalar field to be accreted by the black hole and to escape toward future null infinity. We track the evolution of the energy density of the scalar field, which determines the… Expand
