Using the Reduced Relativistic Gas (RRG) model, we analytically determine the matter power spectrum for Warm Dark Matter (WDM) on small scales, k > 1 h/Mpc. The RRG is a simplified model for the ideal relativistic gas, but very accurate in the cosmological context. In another work, we have shown that, for typical allowed masses for dark matter particles, m > 5 keV, the higher order multipoles, ` > 2, in the Einstein-Boltzmann system of equations are negligible on scales k < 10 h/Mpc. Hence, we… Expand
