Description

We use a two point correlation analysis to look for inhomogeneities in the arrival directions of the high energy muon neutrino candidates detected by the ANTARES neutrino telescope. This
approach is complementary to a point source likelihood-based search, which is mainly sensitive
to single point like sources and not to collective effects. We present the results of a search
based on this two point correlation method performed on ANTARES 2007-2015 data, providing
constraints on models of a population of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) too faint to be detected
by the likelihood-based method.
