Quantum entanglement of dark matter [CL]


We suggest that dark matter in the universe has quantum entanglement among dark matter particles if the dark matter is a Bose-Einstein condensation of ultra-light scalar particles. In this theory any two regions of a galaxy are quantum entangled due to the quantum nature of the condensate. We calculate the entanglement entropy of a typical galactic halo, which turns out to be at least $O(ln(M/m))$ where $M$ is the mass of the halo and $m$ is the dark matter particle mass.
