Any dark matter spikes surrounding black holes in our Galaxy are sites of significant dark matter annihilation, leading to a potentially detectable neutrino signal. In this paper we examine 10 - 105 M ⊙ black holes associated with dark matter spikes that formed in early minihalos and still exist in our Milky Way Galaxy today, in light of neutrino data from the ANTARES [1] and IceCube [2] detectors. In various regions of the sky, we determine the minimum distance away from the solar system that…

Black holes in our galactic halo: compatibility with FGST and PAMELA data and constraints on the first stars

10−105m☉ black holes with dark matter spikes that formed in early minihalos and still exist in our Milky Way Galaxy today are examined in light of recent data from the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope

Prospects for detecting dark matter with neutrino telescopes in intermediate mass black hole scenarios

Current strategies of indirect dark matter detection with neutrino telescopes are based on the search for high-energy neutrinos from the solar core or from the center of the Earth. Here, we propose a

Search for neutrinos from dark matter self-annihilations in the center of the Milky Way with 3 years of IceCube/DeepCore

We present a search for a neutrino signal from dark matter self-annihilations in the Milky Way using the IceCube Neutrino Observatory (IceCube). In 1005 days of data we found no significant excess of

Primordial-black-hole mergers in dark-matter spikes

It has been suggested that primordial black holes (PBHs) of roughly 30 solar masses could make up the dark matter and if so, might account for the recent detections by LIGO involving binary black

Gamma-ray constraints on the first stars from annihilation of light WIMPs

We calculate the limits on the fraction of viable dark matter minihalos in the early universe to host Population III.1 stars, surviving today as dark matter spikes in our Milky Way halo. Motivated by

Dark matter density spikes around primordial black holes

We show that density spikes begin to form from dark matter particles around primordial black holes immediately after their formation at the radiation-dominated cosmological stage. This stems from the

Dark matter annihilation around intermediate mass black holes: an update

The formation and evolution of black holes (BHs) inevitably affects the distribution of dark and baryonic matter in the neighborhood of the BH. These effects may be particularly relevant around

All-flavour search for neutrinos from dark matter annihilations in the Milky Way with IceCube/DeepCore

We present the first IceCube search for a signal of dark matter annihilations in the Milky Way using all-flavour neutrino-induced particle cascades. The analysis focuses on the DeepCore sub-detector

Dark matter search in the inner galactic center halo with H.E.S.S

The presence of dark matter in the universe is nowadays supported by a substantial set of astronomical and cosmological observations. A large amount of dark matter is expected in the Galactic Center

Combined search for neutrinos from dark matter self-annihilation in the Galactic Center with ANTARES and IceCube

We present the results of the first combined dark matter search targeting the Galactic Centre using the ANTARES and IceCube neutrino telescopes. For dark matter particles with masses from 50 to 1000
