Scaling Relations for Dark Matter Annihilation and Decay Profiles in Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxies

19 Feb 2018Andrew B. PaceLouis E. Strigari

Measuring the dark matter distribution in dwarf spheroidal galaxies (dSphs) from stellar kinematics is crucial for indirect dark matter searches, as these distributions set the fluxes for both dark matter annihilation (J-Factor) and decay (D-Factor). Here we produce a compilation of J and D-Factors for dSphs, including new calculations for several newly-discovered Milky Way (MW) satellites, for dSphs outside of the MW virial radius, and for M31 satellites...
