Signals of WIMP annihilation into electrons at the galactic center
2005 (English)In: Proceedings of the 29th International Cosmic Ray Conference, Vol 4: OG 2.1, 2.2 & 2.3, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research , 2005, 57-60 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Photons from the annihilation of dark matter in the center of our Galaxy are expected to provide a promising way to find out the nature and distribution of the dark matter itself. These photons can be either produced directly and/or through successive decays of annihilation products, or radiated from electrons and positrons. This ends up in a multi-wavelength production of photons whose expected intensity can be compared to observational data. Assuming that the Lightest Supersymmetric Particle makes the dark matter, we derive the expected photon signal from a given dark matter model and compare it with present available data.
