Summary: ULB seminar: Raghuveer Garani - "Phenomenology of Dark Matter Annihilations in the Sun"
Description: 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. Although the process of DM capture in astrophysical objects like the Sun is commonly assumed to be due to interactions only with nucleons, there are scenarios in which tree-level DM couplings to quarks are absent, and even if loop-induced interactions with nucleons are allowed, scatterings off electrons could be the dominant capture mechanism. We consider this possibility and study in detail all the ingredients necessary to compute the neutrino production rates from DM annihilations in the Sun (capture, annihilation and evaporation rates) for velocity-independent and isotropic, velocity-dependent and isotropic and momentum-dependent scattering cross sections for DM interactions with electrons and compare them with the results obtained for the case of interactions with nucleons. Interestingly, we find that the evaporatio

Summary: ULB seminar: Yoann Genolini - "Cosmic rays : new insights in the precision era"
Description: Recent experiments (notably PAMELA and, more recently, AMS-02) are ushering us into a new era of measurements of cosmic-ray fluxes with greatly reduced statistical uncertainties. These high precision measurements offer new opportunities for a number of astroparticle problems, such as indirect dark matter searches. In particular, astrophysical anti-particle fluxes are thought to be produced only by collisions of cosmic rays on the interstellar medium, and their relatively low flux makes them a channel of choice to look for rare processes. Nonetheless, the prediction of these expected backgrounds relies on a precise modeling of the cosmic ray propagation and interaction in the Galaxy, usually constrained by « secondary over primary » ratios. I will show that the predictions for the most widely used among these probes, the boron-to-carbon ratio (B/C), strongly depends on underlying assumptions. Under some simplified hypotheses on the propagation scenario, I will present two of our studie
