Alessandro Cuoco (U)


I will describe the current status of the measurement of the Extra-Galactic Gamma-ray Background (EGB) anisotropy (its angular power spectrum) and correlations with galaxy catalogues (cross-correlation functions) derived using data from the Fermi-LAT gamma-ray observatory. I will then discuss the implications for the origin of the EGB, in particular in relation to the presence of a possible Dark Matter contribution.
