Extensive Definition

In astrophysics SIMP is an abbreviation of Strongly Interacting Massive Particle. SIMPs could form the inferred dark matter despite their strong interactions with ordinary matter.
SIMPs have been proposed as a solution for the ultra high energy cosmic ray problem and for the absence of cooling flows. Various experiments and observations have set constraints on SIMP dark matter.
