Abstract: Triangulum-II, a newly discovered dwarf spheroidal galaxy, is a strong candidate for the indirect search of dark matter through the detection of γ-ray emission that could originate from the pair- annihilation of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs). We here report on the analysis of almost seven years Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope data of Triangulum-II which was taken during its all sky survey operation mode. No excess γ-ray emission has been detected above 100 MeV from Triangulum-II. We derive the upper limits on γ-ray flux assuming both the power-law spectra and the spectra related to WIMP annihilation. In this work, we have considered several theoretical WIMP (neutralinos here) models envisioning both thermal and non-thermal production of WIMPs, and put limits on pair-annihilation cross section of WIMPs to constrain the parameter space related to those theoretical models.
