PAMELA and indirect dark matter searches
2009 (English)In: New Journal of Physics, ISSN 1367-2630, Vol. 11, 105023- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We present a review of the experimental results obtained by PAMELA in measuring the (p, (p) over bar ) and e(+/-) abundance in cosmic rays. In this context, we discuss the interpretation of the observed anomalous positron excess in terms of the annihilation of dark matter particles as well as in terms of standard astrophysical sources. Moreover we show the constraints on dark matter models from (p) over bar data.
