Abstract / Description:MAGIC is a 17m diameter Imaging Air Cherenkov Telescope installed on the
Canary Island La Palma. The telescope is designed for gamma-ray astronomy
in the 30 GeV to 30 TeV energy range. Particle physics models predict
candidate particles for Dark Matter, that might annihilate into gamma rays.
Their predicted energy is in the accessible range of the MAGIC telescope.
The expected gamma fluxes depend strongly on the density profiles in the
innermost regions of the Dark Matter halos.

The prospects and strategies for indirect Dark Matter searches with the
MAGIC Telescope are described. The observability and flux expectations
from possible targets are discussed.
