Abstract [en]

The GAMMA-400 gamma-ray telescope with excellent angular and energy resolutions is designed to search for signatures of dark matter in the fluxes of gamma-ray emission and electrons + positrons. Precision investigations of gamma-ray emission from Galactic Center, Crab, Vela, Cygnus, Geminga, and other regions will be performed, as well as diffuse gamma-ray emission, along with measurements of high-energy electron + positron and nuclei fluxes. Furthermore, it will study gamma-ray bursts and gamma-ray emission from the Sun during periods of solar activity. The GAMMA-400 energy range is expected to be from similar to 20 MeV up to TeV energies for gamma rays, up to 10 TeV for electrons + positrons, and up to 10(15) eV for cosmic-ray nuclei. For 100-GeV gamma rays, the GAMMA-400 angular resolution is similar to 0.01 degrees and energy resolution is similar to 1%; the proton rejection factor is similar to 5x10(5). GAMMA-400 will be installed onboard the Russian space observatory.
