PS13 Particle Astrophysics (dark matter)


The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) is a high energy particle physics experiment in space to be placed on the International Space Station (ISS) in 2006 for a three years mission. The main physics goals in the astroparticle domain are the anti-matter and the dark matter searches. Some results of Monte Carlo feasibility study of the AMS detector sensitivity to indirect dark matter searches are presented.
