The 2009 Fermi Symposium

Cosmic-Ray Signals of New Dark Forces

Neal Weiner, NYU


A wide variety of cosmic ray excesses can be understood from the presence of a new force in the dark sector. In this talk, we will explore how these models naturally produce large rates of electron and positron cosmic rays, and make connections to other anomalies possibly related to dark matter. We will explore how such theories and the scales can arise.
