Description

The computation of the energy spectra of Standard Model particles originated from the annihilation/decay of dark matter is a foudamental ingredient to investigate the possibility of its indirect detection. We compute how the inclusion of electroweak corrections signicantly alter such spectra when the mass of dark matter particles is larger than the electroweak scale. A wide overview of these effects will be discussed.
