Description

A multimessenger approach with gravitational waves (GW) and high-energy neutrinos (HEN) is expected to open new perspectives in the study of the most violent astrophysical processes in the Universe. Several experiments (e.g. ANTARES, IceCube, LIGO and VIRGO) are currently recording data and searching for astrophysical sources. A working group gathering physicists from those experiments has been formed, which the aim is to search for any connection between GW and HEN signals. The joint searches focus mainly on the gamma-ray bursts as plausible sources of both GW and HEN. In this talk we present a joint analysis effort, and some recent progresses using data from ANTARES 5Line configuration, and S5/VSR1 data from LIGO and Virgo.
