Title: Indirect Signatures of Gravitino Dark Matter
Abstract: Supersymmetric models provide very interesting candidates for the dark matter of the Universe. The nature of the dark matter is severely constrained by the requirement of a consistent thermal history of the Universe with successful Big Bang nucleosynthesis and successful baryogenesis. In this talk we review the constraints on the nature of the supersymmetric dark matter and we argue that all these constraints point to a scenario with gravitino dark matter and a small amount of R-parity violation. We also discuss possible signatures of this scenario at gamma ray observatories, antimatter experiments and colliders.
