Indirect search for DarkMatter from the Galactic Center (15'+5')
 
High energy gamma ray observations can be used for the indirect search for
annihilating Dark Matter.
One of the possible observation strategy is the targeting of regions where high 
Dark
Matter density
is foreseen, such as the Galactic Center.
This observation poses a challenge: to disentangle the possible Dark Matter 
signal 
from the bright
gamma radiation of astrophysical sources.
The Large Area Telescope on board of the GLAST satellite provides the best
opportunity to date for such a study,
because of its excellent sensitivity and angular resolution, as compared to the 
past
satellite-borne detectors.
A report of the  GLAST LAT Dark Matter Group activities on this topic will be 
given.
