A Blueprint for Detecting Supersymmetric Dark Matter Particles in the Galactic Halo
Carlos Frenk (Durham)

Based on results from the Aquarius programme of N-body simulation of the formation of a galactic halo (including the largest such simulation to date), I will discuss the optimal strategy for detecting gamma radiation from the annihilation of dark matter particles in the halo of the Mily Way. Contrary to current pre-conceptions, I will demonstrate that the strongest signal will come from diffuse emission from the halo of the Milky Way, not from known satellites. I will also discuss the implications of this simulation for direct detection of dark matter in the galaxy.
