Abstract

The question of the identity of dark matter is one of the most outstanding enigmas of contemporary cosmology and particle astrophysics. An overview is given of the subject, a brief history, some proposed particle candidates, and the several methods now available for finally solving this difficult problem. The galactic center is one of the most interesting places for the dark matter search using γ-rays, but also one that has challenging, maybe confusing, other sources of GeV-scale radiation.
