Description

Indirect detection experiments, which search for gamma rays produced in dark-matter annihilation or decay, provide a promising avenue for discovering and characterizing the dark matter.  I will review the current status of such searches with data from the *Fermi* Large Area Telescope. I will specifically highlight new analysis methods that have helped to shed light on the debate regarding the excess of GeV photons in the Inner Galaxy, and discuss how these methods are currently being used to characterize the dark-matter contributions to the Isotropic Gamma-Ray Background.
