Description

Blazars are prime candidate sources for the high energy neutrinos recently detected by IceCube. Being intrinsically variable sources at almost all wavelengths, an accurate modeling of their neutrino emission in both quiescent and flaring states is vital for the interpretation of observations by neutrino telescopes. I will summarize our results on the neutrino emission obtained by the lepto-hadronic modeling of individual BL Lacs both in quiescence and flaring periods. I will discuss in more detail the role of major flares on the expected neutrino event rates.
