For the HAWC Collaboration. Supernova Remnants (SNRs) have long been postulated to be the main sources of Galactic Cosmic Rays (CRs) up to the knee. However, while some SNRs have been shown to be CR accelerators, none of them have been confirmed to accelerate CRs beyond hundreds of TeV. The TeV gamma-ray emission from SNRs provides important information about the maximum energies to which CRs a ... More

Revealing the nature of Dark Matter (DM) is a key objective of the current physical paradigm. Due to its predicted DM density at sub-pc distances, the Galactic Center should have a high number of DM interactions, making it a primary astrophysical source for DM studies. Various particle theories predict that DM annihilations over astrophysical scales can result in a gamma-ray flux. VERITAS is a ter ... More

Traditionally for the extensive air shower arrays, the reconstruction of the gamma-ray induced air showers properties: such as core, energy and the depth of the shower maximum (X$_{max}$) is done by the model-dependent fit of the observed lateral amplitude distribution. This approach has certain disadvantages owing to the limitations of the fit models and procedures. To ameliorate this, we pres ... More

Over the last few years the IceCube Neutrino Telescope has reported the first observations of an high-energy astrophysical neutrino flux. Recently, these observations have been strengthened by the publication of a sample of 82 high-energy starting events (HESE), and 36 high-energy muon neutrino tracks. Many different scenarios for the astrophysical origin of the IceCube neutrinos have been explore ... More

The detection of an electromagnetic signal by Fermi-GBM, temporally and spatially coincident with the first detection of a gravitational wave (GW) coming from a neutron star merger (NSM) by LIGO-Virgo, set a new milestone in multi-messenger astronomy. It enabled an unprecedented follow-up campaign of the event that allowed the identification and monitoring of the source. With improved sensitivitie ... More

The High Altitude Water Cherenkov Observatory (HAWC) is a very high energy (500 GeV to 100 TeV) gamma ray detector located in southern Mexico. HAWC has both a wide field of a view and near-continuous duty cycle, making it ideal for unbiased sky surveys. We use HAWC data to perform such a search for gamma ray signals from "dark dwarfs"; dark matter sub-halos with no optical counterpart. There sh ... More

The IceCube neutrino observatory is a 1 km³ detector deployed deep into the Antarctic ice sheet. While IceCube has recently discovered a diffuse astrophysical flux of high energy neutrinos, its source is yet to be identified. With a field of view covering the whole sky and continuous data-taking, IceCube is capable of detecting transient sources when one or more high-energy neutrinos arrive, and ... More

The transport of Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Rays (UHECR) through photon target fields requires a model for photo-nuclear interactions. The photo-meson energy regime around 150 MeV in nucleus rest frame is relevant for the production of pions off UHECR nuclei and successively for astrophysical and cosmogenic neutrinos. The models in present theoretical calculations, including codes like CRPropa, use ... More

The use of gravitational time delays of macro-lenses to constrain the photon mass and the Lorentz Invariance Violation scale is investigated. The influence of photon masses on the measured time delays of macro-lenses is derived. The sensitivity of time delays to the photon mass is illustrated by a bound obtained from 3 AGN which have measurements in several passbands. The bound obtained is compara ... More

In multi-field reheating after modular $j$-inflation we investigate the conditions under which baryogenesis via non-thermal leptogenesis can be successfully realized. We introduce three heavy right-handed neutrinos to the non-supersymmetric standard model of particle physics, assuming hierarchical neutrino masses. Considering a typical mass for the first right-handed neutrino of the order of $10^{ ...

Such PBHs may form large numbers of binaries before matter-radiation equality and, if these binaries survive until today, they may contribute to the merger rate observable by LIGO and Virgo.

The boosted power spectrum at small scales leads to increased formation of dense, small-scale structure at early times, enhancing the present-day annihilation rate of annihilating dark matter. In this work, we show how to compute the imp ...

One paradigm which can evade these bounds is Inelastic Dark Matter (iDM), where a nontrivial dark sector contains two particles with a small mass splitting$\delta$.

In our model neutrino masses arise radiatively from the exchange of colored DM constituents, giving a common origin for both dark matter and neutrino mass.

Elastic scattering of a DM particle with ordinary matter can in particular reduce the kinetic energy of the DM particle when it passes through these stars, such that its speed passes below the corresponding escape velocity. Once gravitationally trapped, DM undergoes further s ...

As a demonstrative example of the application of the mechanism, we will present the particular case of Standard Model extension by U(1)$_D$symmetry. As a result, we show how neutrino masses can be generated via kinetic mixing ...

We study the effect of self-interacting DM (SIDM) captured by the nearby NS that can reheat NS to an appreciated surface temperature. Recently, DM self-interaction was considered as an negligible effect due to its small geometric cross section in NS. However, we will demonstrate when DM-nu ...

These pairs can emit bremsstrahlung photons as they interact with local electromagnetic fields. These photons can initiat ...

In some models for WIMP dark matter, radiative corrections dominate over the LO contributions in the computation of annihilation cross sections relevant for indirect detection. These corrections need to be resummed to all orders in perturbation theory for theoretical predictions to be sensible.

Blazars spectral energy distributions are dominated by non-thermal emission from the jet, consisting of two main bumps. For the so-called extreme blazars, these components each peak in the X-ray and GeV-TeV bands. Recent TeV observations have revealed a few of these objects whose second peak exceeds several TeV (e.g. 1ES 0229+200). Such intriguing sources have been objects of different studies re ... More

The standard way to calculate the thermal relic abundance of dark matter relies on the assumption that the dark matter particles remain in kinetic equilibrium throughout the chemical freeze-out process. However, this assumption is not always justified.

We study the effects of interaction of jets in Active Galactic Nuclei when they encounter stellar clusters passing across the inner jet. The interaction provides a scenario to address non–thermal processes. In jet–star interactions a double bow–shock structure is formed where particles get accelerated via diffusive mechanism. Individual encounters have a limited effect, however, dense ... More
