[20.] Hui L., Unitarity bounds and the cuspy halo problem.
The core-cusp problem refers to the discrepancy between N-body simulations of collisionless cold dark matter, which predict a cuspy profile for the dark matter halo in galaxies, and observations which instead suggest a cored profile towards the center.
A problem that has received a lot of attention in the last decade is the apparent discrepancy between the cuspy DM halo profiles predicted by cosmological N-body simulations (e.g., NFW, [58]) and observations of low surface brightness and late-type dwarf galaxies which suggest the presence of cored DM halos (e.g., [59-61]).
