Abstract

The detection of exotic cosmic rays due to pair annihilation of dark matter particles in the Milky Way halo is a viable techniques to search for supersymmetric dark matter candidates. The study of the spectrum of gamma-rays, antiprotons and positrons offers good possibilities to perform this search in a significant portion of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model parameter space. In particular the EGRET team have seen a convincing signal for a strong excess of emission from the Galactic center that has no simple explanation with standard processes. We will review the limits achievable with the experiment GLAST taking into account the LEP results and we will compare this method with the antiproton and positrons experiments, and direct detection underground experiments.
