Description

The Fermi LAT collaboration has recently presented constraints on a signal from annihilating dark matter from separate analyses of a number of dwarf spheroidal galaxies. Since the expected annihilation signal has the same physical properties regardless of the target (except for a normalization scale), the constraining power can be enhanced by a combined analysis, for which initial results will be presented here.
