A search for muon neutrinos from Kaluza-Klein dark matter annihilations in the Sun has been performed with the 22-string configuration of the IceCube neutrino detector using data collected in 104.3 days of live time in 2007. No excess over the expected atmospheric background has been observed. Upper limits have been obtained on the annihilation rate of captured lightest Kaluza-Klein particle (LKP) WIMPs in the Sun and converted to limits on the LKP-proton cross sections for LKP masses in the… 

Limits on Kaluza-Klein dark matter annihilation in the Sun from recent IceCube results

We interpret recent IceCube results on searches for dark matter accumulated in the sun in terms of the lightest Kaluza-Klein excitation (assumed here to be the Kaluza-Klein photon, B 1 ), obtaining

Limits on Kaluza–Klein dark matter annihilation in the Sun from recent IceCube results

We interpret recent IceCube results on searches for dark matter accumulated in the Sun in terms of the lightest Kaluza–Klein excitation (assumed here to be the Kaluza–Klein photon, $$B^1$$ B 1 ),

Searches for Dark Matter with the IceCube Detector

A formalism for quickly and directly comparing event-level IceCube data with arbitrary annihilation spectra in detailed model scans is presented and an application of this formalism to both model exclusion and parameter estimation in models of supersymmetry is shown.

Direct Detection Constraints on Dark Matter Event Rates in Neutrino Telescopes, and Collider Implications

Neutrino telescopes are looking to detect neutrinos produced by the annihilation of weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) dark matter in the sun. The event rate depends on the dark matter

Neutrinos from Kaluza-Klein Dark Matter Annihilations in the Sun

In this talk, we compute fluxes of neutrinos from Kaluza–Klein dark matter annihilations in the Sun based on cross-sections from both five- and six-dimensional models. For our numerical calculations,

Dark matter in the Sun: scattering off electrons vs nucleons

The annihilation of dark matter (DM) particles accumulated in the Sun could produce a flux of neutrinos, which is potentially detectable with neutrino detectors/telescopes and the DM elastic

Enhanced neutrino signals from dark matter annihilation in the Sun via metastable mediators

We calculate the neutrino signal resulting from annihilation of secluded dark matter in the Sun. In this class of models, dark matter annihilates first into metastable mediators, which subsequently
