Troy A. Porter
Stanford, HEPL

Abstract for Galactic Cosmic Rays and associated diffuse emissions:
I will give a brief overview of the current state of astrophysics of cosmic rays and gamma rays. Some part of the talk is devoted to Galactic cosmic rays in the solar system and to their interactions with solar system bodies.

Abstract for The Interstellar Medium and Cosmic Rays in the Milky Way:
Predictions of the interstellar emissions from cosmic rays propagating in the Milky Way by codes like GALPROP rely on models for the interstellar medium (ISM). The most important components of the ISM for the production of non-thermal emissions at gamma-ray energies are the interstellar gas and radiation field. I will talk about the challenges in deriving high-quality models for the interstellar gas and radiation fields and discuss the impact that uncertainties in these components can have on propagation model predictions. Consideration of these uncertainties are especially important for indirect dark matter searches toward complicated regions like the Galactic Centre.
