Secluded singlet fermionic dark matter driven by the Fermi gamma-ray excess
We examine the possibility that the dark matter (DM) interpretation of the GeV scale Fermi gamma-ray excess at the Galactic center can be realized in a specific framework-secluded singlet fermionic
Dark matter properties implied by gamma ray interstellar emission models
We infer dark matter properties from gamma ray residuals extracted using eight different interstellar emission scenarios proposed by the Fermi-LAT Collaboration to explain the Galactic Center gamma
Energy spectra of massive two-body decay products and mass measurement
A bstractWe have recently established a new method for measuring the mass of unstable particles produced at hadron colliders based on the analysis of the energy distribution of a massless product
Energy peaks: A high energy physics outlook
Energy distributions of decay products carry information on the kinematics of the decay in ways that are at the same time straightforward and quite hidden. I will review these properties and discuss
Simple “invariance” of two-body decay kinematics
We study the two-body decay of a mother particle into a massless daughter. We further assume that the mother particle is unpolarized and has a generic boost distribution in the laboratory frame. In
Model-independent analysis of the DAMPE excess
A bstractThe Dark Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE) recently released measurements of the electron spectrum with a hint of a narrow peak at about 1.4 TeV. We investigate dark matter (DM) models that


Interpretation of the Galactic Center excess of gamma rays with heavier dark matter particles
Previous attempts at explaining the gamma-ray excess near the Galactic Center have focused on dark matter annihilating directly into Standard Model particles. This results in a preferred dark matter
A Renormalizable Model for the Galactic Center Gamma Ray Excess from Dark Matter Annihilation
Evidence for an excess of gamma rays with O ( GeV ) energy coming from the center of our galaxy has been steadily accumulating over the past several years. Recent studies of the excess in data from
Effective field theory approach to the Galactic Center gamma-ray excess
We explore the possibility of explaining a gamma-ray excess in the Galactic center, originally pointed out by Hooper, collaborators, and other groups, in an effective field theory framework. We
On The Origin Of The Gamma Rays From The Galactic Center
The region surrounding the center of the Milky Way is both astrophysically rich and complex, and is predicted to contain very high densities of dark matter. Utilizing three years of data from the
Fitting the Fermi-LAT GeV excess: On the importance of including the propagation of electrons from dark matter
An excess of gamma rays at GeV energies has been pointed out in the Fermi-LAT data. This signal comes from a narrow region centred around the Galactic center and has been interpreted as possible
WIMPs at the galactic center
Simple models of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) predict dark matter annihilations into pairs of electroweak gauge bosons, Higgses or tops, which through their subsequent cascade decays
A tale of tails: Dark matter interpretations of the Fermi GeV excess in light of background model systematics
Several groups have identified an extended excess of gamma rays over the modeled foreground and background emissions towards the Galactic center (GC) based on observations with the Fermi Large Area
Multistep cascade annihilations of dark matter and the Galactic Center excess
If dark matter is embedded in a non-trivial dark sector, it may annihilate and decay to lighter dark-sector states which subsequently decay to the Standard Model. Such scenarios - with annihilation
Contribution of cosmic rays interacting with molecular clouds to the Galactic Center gamma-ray excess
The Fermi-LAT data appear to have an excess of gamma-rays from the inner 150 pc of the Galactic Center. The main explanations proposed for this are an unresolved population of millisecond pulsars
