Weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) are one of the main candidates for making up the dark matter in the Universe. If these particles make up the dark matter, then they can be captured by t ...

Neutrinos from WIMP annihilations
We make an improved analysis on the flow of neutrinos originating from WIMP annihilations inside the Sun and the Earth. We treat both neutrino interaction and oscillation effects in a consistent
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory - Contributions to ICRC 2015 Part IV: Searches for Dark Matter and Exotic Particles
Papers on searches for dark matter and exotic particles submitted to the 34th International Cosmic Ray Conference (ICRC 2015, The Hague) by the IceCube Collaboration.
Searching for Dark Matter Annihilation into Neutrinos with Super-Kamiokande
This work presents indirect searches for dark matter (DM) as WIMPs (Weakly Interacting Massive Particles) using neutrino data recorded by the Super-Kamiokande detector from 1996 to 2014. The results
Searches for Dark Matter with IceCube and DeepCore : New constraints on theories predicting dark matter particles
The cubic-kilometer sized IceCube neutrino observatory, constructed in the glacial ice at the South Pole, searches indirectly for dark matter via neutrinos from dark matter self-annihilations. It h
Indirect searches for dark matter at Baksan and Baikal
We present our results of searches for neutrino signal from dark matter annihilations in the Sun at Baksan Underground Scintillation Telescope and Baikal NT200 Deep-Underwater Neutrino Telescope. We
Simulation of neutrino signal from dark matter annihilation for JUNO experiment
Dark matter (DM) plays a major role in the large-scale structure formation of the universe. The leading candidate for DM particle is generally called Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) for
Probing dark matter self-interaction in the Sun with IceCube-PINGU
We study the capture, annihilation and evaporation of dark matter (DM) inside the Sun. It has been shown that the DM self-interaction can increase the DM number inside the Sun. We demonstrate that
Indirect Search for Dark Matter with the ANTARES Neutrino Telescope
Indirect search for Dark Matter trapped inside celestial bodies is one of the main physics goals of neutrino telescopes. The expected sensitivity of ANTARES with its data recorded in 2007 and 2008 to
θ13: phenomenology, present status and prospect
The leptonic mixing angle θ13 is currently a high-priority topic in the field of neutrino physics, with five experiments under way, searching for neutrino oscillations induced by this angle. We


Cross section and polarization of neutrino-produced τ's made simple
Practical formulae are derived for the cross section and polarization vector of the τ lepton produced in deep inelastic neutrino–nucleon scattering in the frame of the simple quark–parton model.
Limits on cold-dark-matter candidates from deep underground detectors.
It is found that existing underground experiments are capable of finding: or excluding: several possible cold-dark-matter candidates.
Indirect detection of dark matter in km size neutrino telescopes
Neutrino telescopes of kilometer size are currently being planned. They will be two or three orders of magnitude bigger than presently operating detectors, but they will have a much higher muon
A common prejudice is that neutrinos produced by the decays of real or virtual Z0-bosons do not oscillate. We will show that this is incorrect even in case of the universality of interactions and of
Indirect Neutralino Detection Rates in Neutrino Telescopes.
Neutralinos annihilating in the center of the Sun or the Earth may give rise to a detectable signal of neutrinos. We derive the indirect detection rates for neutrino telescopes in the minimal

Probing Kaluza-Klein dark matter with neutrino telescopes
In models in which all of the Standard Model fields live in extra universal dimensions, the lightest Kaluza-Klein (KK) particle can be stable. Calculations of the one-loop radiative corrections to
