Aims. Stellar mass distribution in the Andromeda galaxy (M 31) is estimated using optical and near-infrared imaging data. Combining the derived stellar mass model with various kinematical data, properties of the dark matter (DM) halo of the galaxy are constrained. Methods. SDSS observations through the ugriz filters and the Spitzer imaging at 3.6 microns are used to sample the spectral energy distribution (SED) of the galaxy at each imaging pixel. Intrinsic dust extinction effects are taken… 
Fermi-LAT Observations of γ-Ray Emission toward the Outer Halo of M31
TLDR
Evidence is found for an extended excess that appears to be distinct from the conventional MW foreground, having a total radial extension upward of ~120-200 kpc from the center of M31, and plausible interpretations of the excess emission are discussed.
Detecting axion dark matter with radio lines from neutron star populations
It has been suggested that radio telescopes may be sensitive to axion dark matter that resonantly converts to radio photons in the magnetospheres surrounding neutron stars (NSs). In this work, we
The Fermi-LAT GeV excess as a tracer of stellar mass in the Galactic bulge
An anomalous emission component at energies of a few gigaelectronvolts and located towards the inner Galaxy is present in the Fermi-LAT data. At present, the two most promising explanations are the
Search for γ -ray emission from dark matter particle interactions from the Andromeda and Triangulum galaxies with the Fermi Large Area Telescope
The Andromeda (M31) and Triangulum (M33) galaxies are the closest Local Group galaxies to the Milky Way, being only 785 and 870 kpc away. These two galaxies provide an independent view of high-energy
Investigating the dark matter minispikes with the gamma-ray signal from the halo of M31
Recently, the evidence for gamma-ray emission has been found in the FermiLAT observation for the outer halo of Andromeda galaxy (M31). The dark matter (DM) annihilation offers a possible explanation
Gamma-ray image reconstruction of the Andromeda galaxy
We analyze about 12 years of Fermi-LAT data in the direction of the Andromeda galaxy (M31). We robustly characterize its spectral and morphological properties against systematic uncertainties related
The Andromeda galaxy’s most important merger about 2 billion years ago as M32’s likely progenitor
Although the proximity of the Andromeda galaxy (M31) offers an opportunity to understand how mergers affect galaxies1, uncertainty remains about M31’s most important mergers. Previous studies focused

Cosmic-ray and gamma-ray observations have yielded several notable excesses that often lend themselves to explanation by various dark matter annihilation/decay models. In particular, the AMS-02

The formation and evolution of dark matter and galaxies is one of the basic topics in cosmological research. This thesis uses numerical simulation to study the evolution of the universe under the
Dark Matter Effects on Compact Binary Stars
Abstract As compact binary star systems move inside the halo of the galaxies, they interact with dark matter particles. The interaction between dark matter particles and baryonic matter causes dark
