Particle dark matter: Evidence, candidates and constraints
In this review article, we discuss the current status of particle dark matter, including experimental evidence and theoretical motivations. We discuss a wide array of candidates for particle darkExpand

The characterization of the gamma-ray signal from the central Milky Way: A case for annihilating dark matter
Abstract Past studies have identified a spatially extended excess of ∼1–3 GeV gamma rays from the region surrounding the Galactic Center, consistent with the emission expected from annihilating darkExpand

History of dark matter
Although dark matter is a central element of modern cosmology, the history of how it became accepted as part of the dominant paradigm is often ignored or condensed into an anecdotal account focusedExpand

Dark matter annihilation in the Galactic Center as seen by the Fermi Gamma Ray Space Telescope
Abstract We analyze the first two years of data from the Fermi Gamma Ray Space Telescope from the direction of the inner 10° around the Galactic Center with the intention of constraining, or findingExpand

Neutrinos from individual gamma-ray bursts in the BATSE catalog
Abstract We estimate the neutrino emission from individual γ-ray bursts observed by the BATSE detector on the Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory. Neutrinos are produced by photoproduction of pions whenExpand

Two Emission Mechanisms in the Fermi Bubbles: A Possible Signal of Annihilating Dark Matter
We study the variation of the spectrum of the Fermi Bubbles with Galactic latitude. Far from the Galactic plane (|b| > 30 degrees), the observed gamma-ray emission is nearly invariant with latitude,Expand

Dark matter and collider phenomenology of universal extra dimensions
Abstract We review the phenomenology of models with flat, compactified extra dimensions where all of the Standard Model fields are allowed to propagate in the bulk, known as Universal ExtraExpand

Cosmology with a very light Lμ − Lτ gauge boson
A bstractIn this paper, we explore in detail the cosmological implications of an abelian Lμ − Lτ gauge extension of the Standard Model featuring a light and weakly coupled Z′. Such a scenario isExpand

Possible Evidence For Dark Matter Annihilation In The Inner Milky Way From The Fermi Gamma Ray Space Telescope
We study the gamma rays observed by the Fermi Gamma Ray Space Telescope from the direction of the Galactic Center and find that their angular distribution and energy spectrum are well described by aExpand

MeV dark matter: has it been detected?
We discuss the possibility that the recent detection of 511 keV gamma rays from the galactic bulge, as observed by INTEGRAL, is a consequence of low mass (1-100 MeV) particle dark matterExpand
