Associated research grant:14/11070-2 - Dark matter in the Milky Way: a precision era, AP.JP


The goal of this collaboration is to implement the new information on the DM distribution - obtained as an outcome of the current Jovem Pesquisador project (FAPESP: 2014/11070-2) "Dark matter in the Milky Way, a precision era" - in the multichannel dark matter searches. This will permit to evaluate the impact of the latest findings on the dark matter distribution into indirect (looking for astrophysical signatures of dark matter annihilation or decay products) and direct (aiming at a nuclear recoil due to scattering of the DM particle) searches. The outcome of such an approach is expected to strongly impact particle physics models for dark matter, as for example supersymmetry, which will be addressed with dedicated scans of the parameter space implementing the new results on direct and indirect. The outcome of this project will greatly enhance the level of accuracy and precision of such searches, and give unprecedented reliability to multichannel searches of physics beyond the standard model.
