Dark Matter makes up 28% of the contents of our universe, with the normal matter we interact with everyday making up only 5%. Despite this, we don't know what it is, and it hasn't been directly detected. We simulated this dark matter candidate using a DBI-like equation of motion to evolve the field instead of the standard Klein-Gordon equation. We further studied the decay of the field via self-resonance. Finally, we incorporated a gravitational wave package into the code which allows us to predict for stochastic gravitational wave background from this model.
