A dark matter signal in the Inner Galaxy?
  OKC colloquia

Speaker : Jennifer Gaskins (GRAPPA, Amsterdam)
Abstract : Dark matter makes up roughly 80% of the matter in the universe, yet the details of its particle nature remain unknown. Many particle dark matter candidates can pair annihilate to produce Standard Model particles, including gamma-ray photons, charged particles, and neutrinos, providing a means of indirectly detecting this elusive component of the universe. In recent years an excess of gamma rays from the Inner Galaxy in the Fermi LAT data has been identified. This emission has been interpreted as a possible signature of the annihilation of dark matter particles. I will review these recent results, and discuss possible ways to confirm a dark matter signal, including the potential of multi-wavelength searches.
