Constraining non-standard Dark Matter-Nucleon Interactions with IceCube
July 28, 2021
After scattering off nuclei in the Sun, dark matter particles can be gravitationally captured by
the Sun, accumulate in the Sun’s core and annihilate into Standard Model particles. Neutrinos
originating from these annihilations can be detected by the IceCube Neutrino Observatory,
located at the South Pole. Due to the non-observation of these neutrinos, constraints on the
standard spin-dependent and spin-independent dark matter-nucleon scattering cross sections have
been placed. Based on these constraints, we present upper limits on the coupling constants of
the non-relativistic effective theory of dark matter-nucleon interactions, including velocity and
momentum dependent interactions.

very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
