Morning session (2)
- Jacco Vink (University of Amsterdam)
The origin of the flux of TeV-PeV neutrinos observed with IceCube is still a mystery. Various scenarios have been considered, ranging from conventional Galactic or extragalactic sources to exotic production mechanisms like PeV dark matter decay. One possibility to distinguish these models is via their distinctive anisotropy patterns in the arrival direction of neutrinos. So far, the data do...
The discovery of PeV neutrinos by the IceCube neutrino telescope opened the high-energy neutrino astronomy era. I will discuss multi-messengers techniques to pinpoint the eventual origin of the IceCube events and constrain the physics of cosmic accelerators.
Kimberly Emig (Leiden Observatory)
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory has provided the first map of the high energy (∼ 0.01 – 1 PeV) sky in neutrinos. Since neutrinos propagate undeflected, their arrival direction is an important identifier for sources of high energy particle acceleration. We present a statistical analysis of positional coincidences of the IceCube neutrinos with known astrophysical objects from several catalogs....
Ke Fang (University of Maryland)
he origin of astrophysical neutrinos remains a mystery. The first detections of TeV-PeV neutrinos by the IceCube Observatory found their arrival directions showing no departure from isotropy, implying that to detect point sources, both order-of-magnitude more statistics and more advanced search tools are needed. In this talk we discuss a maximum-likelihood method for search of point-like...
