The small angular scale fluctuations of the (on large scale) isotropic gamma-ray background (IGRB) carry information about the presence of unresolved source classes. A guaranteed contribution to the IGRB is expected from the unresolved gamma-ray AGN while other extragalactic sources, Galactic gamma-ray source populations and dark matter Galactic and extragalactic structures (and sub-structures) are candidate contributors. The IGRB was measured with unprecedented precision by the Large Area… Expand
Dark matter implications of Fermi-LAT measurement of anisotropies in the diffuse gamma-ray background
The detailed origin of the diffuse gamma-ray background is still unknown. However, the contribution of unresolved sources is expected to induce small-scale anisotropies in this emission, which mayExpand
Tomography of the Fermi-LAT gamma-ray diffuse extragalactic signal via cross-correlations with galaxy catalogs
Building on our previous cross-correlation analysis (Xia et al. 2011) between the isotropic gamma-ray background (IGRB) and different tracers of the large-scale structure of the universe, we updateExpand
DIFFUSE γ -RAY EMISSION FROM GALACTIC PULSARS
Millisecond Pulsars (MSPs) are old fast-spinning neutron stars and they represent the second most abundant source population discovered by the Large Area Telescope (LAT) on board of the Gamma-RayExpand
The nature of the Diffuse Gamma-Ray Background
We review the current understanding of the diffuse gamma-ray background (DGRB). The DGRB is what remains of the total measured gamma-ray emission after the subtraction of the resolved sources and ofExpand
Characterization of dark-matter-induced anisotropies in the diffuse gamma-ray background
The Fermi-LAT collaboration has recently reported the detection of angular power above the photon noise level in the diffuse gamma-ray background between 1 and 50 GeV. Such signal can be used toExpand
Unresolved Gamma-Ray Sky through its Angular Power Spectrum.
TLDR
A measurement of the UGRB autocorrelation angular power spectrum based on eight years of Fermi-LAT Pass 8 data products finds evidence (with ∼3.7σ significance) that the scenario in which two classes of sources contribute to the U GRB signal is favored over a single class. Expand
Dissecting the Gamma-Ray Background in Search of Dark Matter
Several classes of astrophysical sources contribute to the approximately isotropic gamma-ray background measured by the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope. In this paper, we use Fermi's catalog ofExpand

Fermi-LAT gamma-ray anisotropy and intensity explained by unresolved Radio-Loud Active Galactic Nuclei
Radio-loud active galactic nuclei (AGN) are expected to contribute substantially to both the intensity and anisotropy of the isotropic gamma-ray background (IGRB). In turn, the measured properties ofExpand

Spectrum of the isotropic diffuse gamma-ray emission derived from first-year Fermi Large Area Telescope data.
TLDR
The first Fermi Large Area Telescope measurements of the so-called "extragalactic" diffuse gamma-ray emission (EGB) are reported, finding the spectrum is featureless, less intense, and softer than that derived from EGRET data. Expand
