Description

Dark matter could be detected indirectly through the observation of neutrinos produced in dark matter self-annihilations or decays. Data collected with the world's largest neutrino telescope, IceCube, has been searched for such signatures and stringent constraints have been placed on dark matter models. Limits on spin-dependent and spin-independent scattering of dark matter with nucleons based on the absence of an excess neutrino flux from the center of the Sun and Earth will be reported. Searches for dark matter annihilations in the Galaxy carried out with multiple years of IceCube data will be presented. The talk will conclude by summarizing the discovery prospects at IceCube and proposed upgrades, PINGU and IceCube-Gen2.
