Direct and indirect detection of WIMPs

Abstract : We present here the principles of detection of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles, which could represent a large contribution to Dark Matter. A status of the experimental situation is given both for indirect and direct detection. In particular, the DAMA claim for a WIMP signal is confronted to the recent results of the CDMS and EDELWEISS experiments. We conclude by comparing direct and indirect search sensitivities.
