PPPC 4 DM ID: a poor particle physicist cookbook for dark matter indirect detection
We correct a few mistakes of the original version of this work (notably related to the computations of extragalactic gamma rays), while at the same time improving and upgrading other aspects (notablyExpand
Tools for model-independent bounds in direct dark matter searches
We discuss a framework (based on non-relativistic operators) and a self-contained set of numerical tools to derive the bounds from some current direct detection experiments on virtually any arbitraryExpand
Constraints on Dark Matter annihilations from reionization and heating of the intergalactic gas
Dark Matter annihilations after recombination and during the epoch of structure formation deposit energy in the primordial intergalactic medium, producing reionization and heating. We investigate theExpand
Inverse Compton constraints on the Dark Matter e+e- excesses
Abstract Recent results from experiments like PAMELA have pointed to excesses of e ± in cosmic rays. If interpreted in terms of Dark Matter annihilations, they imply the existence of an abundantExpand
Flavour anomalies after the RK∗ measurement
A bstractThe LHCb measurement of the μ/e ratio RK∗ indicates a deficit with respect to the Standard Model prediction, supporting earlier hints of lepton universality violation observed in the RKExpand
Gamma ray constraints on decaying dark matter
We derive new bounds on decaying Dark Matter from the gamma ray measurements of (i) the isotropic residual (extragalactic) background by Fermi and (ii) the Fornax galaxy cluster by H.E.S.S.. We ndExpand
You can hide but you have to run: direct detection with vector mediators
A bstractWe study direct detection in simplified models of Dark Matter (DM) in which interactions with Standard Model (SM) fermions are mediated by a heavy vector boson. We consider fully general,Expand
Dark matter with pseudoscalar-mediated interactions explains the DAMA signal and the galactic center excess.
A Dirac dark matter particle interacting with ordinary matter via the exchange of a light pseudoscalar, and it is shown that this candidate can accommodate the long-standing DAMA modulated signal and yet be compatible with all exclusion limits at 99(S)% C.L. Expand
Diffuse gamma ray constraints on annihilating or decaying Dark Matter after Fermi
Abstract We consider the diffuse gamma ray data from Fermi first year observations and compare them to the gamma ray fluxes predicted by Dark Matter annihilation or decay (both from prompt emissionExpand
Bounds on Dark-Matter Annihilations from 21-cm Data.
The observation of an absorption feature in the 21-cm spectrum at redshift z≈17 implies bounds on dark-matter (DM) annihilations for a broad range of masses, given that significant heating of theExpand
