Silvia Manconi ( Institute for Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology, RWTH Aachen ) – Indirect dark matter searches with cosmic messengers

November 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm UTC+0

The cosmic radiations we measure at the Earth are messengers to unveil the properties of our universe. Overwhelming observational evidence points to the existence of dark matter, an elusive form of matter thought to permeate the universe, but inferred only through its gravitational effects.

The quest for non-gravitational evidence of dark matter is one of the most compelling problems in present cosmology and particle physics, and is addressed using different techniques. We will start this talk with an overview of the current searches for indirect signatures of dark matter in the cosmic radiations.

We will then focus on two recently debated dark matter hints: the excess fluxes of cosmic antimatter and of gamma-rays from the center of our Galaxy.
