Results form two years of gamma-ray observations with HAWC

Presented by Robert Lauer (UNM)

The HAWC Observatory is a pioneering wide-field-of-view survey
instrument for TeV gamma rays, operating in Puebla, Mexico. I will
present an overview of the major results and publications based on data
from the first 2 years of observations with the completed array. This
will include a summary of the 2HWC source catalog, the monitoring of
variability in Blazar emissions, multi-messenger follow-up programs, the
study of very extended pulsar wind nebulae, and searches for TeV gamma
rays from dark matter annihilation and the Fermi Bubbles.
