Abstract

A brief review is first given of the forms of dark matter that are hypothesized, and a summary of the basic observational evidence for dark matter is provided. Then a summary of recent results from indirect and direct detection dark matter search experiments is given. Some discussion is also done of MOND theories along with recent analysis of galaxy surface density data that provides some support for such theories.
