Indirect Search for Dark Matter with the ANTARES Neutrino Telescope

Abstract : The ANTARES Collaboration is operating the largest water Cherenkov neutrino telescope in the Northern hemisphere installed in the Mediterranean Sea offshore France. One major goal of ANTARES is the search for neutrinos produced in self-annihilation of Dark Matter particles, for instance in the direction of the Sun or the Galactic Centre. First results on the search for Dark Matter annihilations in the Sun with the data recorded in 2007 and 2008 are presented, as well as sensitivity studies on Dark Matter searches with the full ANTARES detector and the future large undersea cubic-kilometre neutrino telescope studied by the KM3NeT consortium. A comparison with respect to predictions on neutrino fluxes from Dark Matter annihilations in the framework of CMSSM and UED models will be presented.
