Dark Matter in the Milky Way. Distribution, uncertainties, and their impact on the search for new physics
The distribution of Dark Matter in galaxies is one remarkable output of structure formation in a cosmological context, and an important input for the searches of the nature of Dark Matter. In this talk I will present the results of recent, fully data-driven analysis of the determination of the Dark Matter content in the Milky Way. I will also show how the uncertainties obtained with this observation-driven approach affect the interpretation of direct and indirect searches, and eventually the searches for the very nature of the Dark Matter.
