Search for dark matter in Fermi-LAT data with the DM catalog pipeline

(Eric Charles, Alex Drlica-Wagner, Xian Hou)


The Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) Collaboration has recently updated the tools for the search for dark matter in Fermi-LAT data. The new tools permit to combine the limits found from different targets and use the existing DMPipe, DMSky, Pymodeler and Fermipy Python packages. In this presentation we include results for the search for dark matter signatures with an analysis of 115 months of Pass 8 data from Dwarf spheroidal galaxies, Andromeda and Triangulum galaxies, the Large and Small Magellanic coulds and the Galactic center. We are going to present for the first time the combined limits that we derive from the above cited targets. This search is a very powerful test for the dark matter interpretation of the Galactic Center excess.
