Fuzzy Dark Matter: Dunkelmaterie mit Quanteneigenschaften

In this work a conceptionally simple model for the so-called dark matter
will be studied (``fuzzy dark matter''). Fuzzy dark matter possesses
interesting properties and is subject of current research. The model consists
of a scalar field with extremely small mass, such that the de Broglie
wavelength of fuzzy dark matter has a macroscopic size, comparable with
galactic scales. This leads to a flattening of the density profile close to
the galactic centre, in agreement with observations for numerous types of
galaxies. In this project the theoretical foundations of the model are
worked out, and the density profile in a simple setup is determined. Finally,
further potentially observable properties of fuzzy dark matter will be studied.
