- adj. Having cusps
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Between a conflict with a cuspy DM model and an isothermal isodense core, I would bet money that the later would have to give.
The only thing that doesn't quite jam with current models is that: "These limits suggest dark halo density structures are characterised by constant density central regions, rather than divergent cuspy profiles."
As a cuspy second/third wave feminist, I tend to pick and choose amongst the dictates of contemporary femininity.
The dark matter halo would produce just the right sort of signal, since it’s presumably highly cuspy in the center, leading to high rates of the sorts of interactions which might lead to detectable photons, but only near the center of the galaxy.
