Titolo: Discovering the Dark Side of the Universe with Neutrinos
Abstract: Dark Matter (DM) is a creature of modern cosmology. For over 75 years we have been wondering on its nature. Despite the construction of new detectors and new theories, we only have hints but still don't have the final answer. One of the most appealing solution to the problem of the Dark Matter is given by Supersymmetry. Under certain assumptions, Supersymmetry elegantly provides a perfect WIMP (Weakly Interacting Massive Particle) candidate for DM. These Supersymmetric WIMPs can accumulate into dense object like planets, stars and heavier celestial bodies and thus undergo annihiliation to produce Standard Model particles, neutrinos included. We will show how these neutrino signals can be evaulated into modern km$^3$ \v{C}erenkov neutrino telescopes and which limits can be posed on Supersymmetric DM with the future high energy neutrino underwater telescope KM3NeT.
