Abstract: The nature of Dark Matter is one of the important unresolved questions in fundamental physics. It is assumed in many Beyond Standard Model theories that dark matter candidates can have weak coupling to Standard Model (SM) particles. In heavy cosmological objects, like galaxies, the Sun, or the Earth, dark matter can be gravitationally accumulated to a high abundance such that it can decay or annihilate into the anomalous flux of SM particles detectable by various detector types. This talk will provide an overview of the indirect searches for neutrino signals from Dark Matter with the IceCube Neutrino Observatory.
