Contributed talk in mini symposium Dark Matter


Michael Zantedeschi (TDLI)


Confinement is realised in QCD as well as in several beyond the standard model scenarios. Therefore, it is natural to expect that confining phase transitions took place in the early Universe. In this talk I will show that the unique dynamics of confinement can lead to several phenomenological by-products such as dark matter in the form of primordial black holes and a peculiar gravitational wave spectrum.
