Plenary session 1: Opening ceremony and Workshop introduction
- Antonio Capone (Universita e INFN, Roma I (IT))
Extragalactic sources are believed to dominate the ultra-high energy cosmic ray (CR) spectrum beyond the CR "knee". These sources are also expected to produce very high-energy neutrinos via interactions with gas and radiation during acceleration and emission of CRs or during CR propagation over cosmic distances. I will focus in my talk on extragalactic source candidates of the TeV-PeV neutrino...
Francesco Vissani (INFN - LNGS)
IceCube has changed the rules of the game and it continues to progress. Remarkably, the observations are compatible with the known neutrino oscillations. Moreover, the topologies of the events have been used to probe exotic physics. Still, we need independent confirmations; the connections of IceCube's neutrinos with astronomical/astrophysical facts heavily rely on speculations--excepting...
I will present some of the most recent results from the Fermi gamma-ray space telescope with emphasis on the latest catalogs (e.g. 3FGL, 3LAC and 2FHL) and on the class of blazars. I will also discuss the contribution of blazars to the extragalactic gamma-ray, VHE and the neutrino background. These results are based on Fermi detected sources, Monte Carlo simulations and on a new large sample...
