Description

The ANTARES neutrino telescope and other experiments are searching for more detailed information on the previously observed shifted high-energy neutrinos from the gamma-ray bursts travelling through interstellar space. Many theoretical models have been proposed to explain this phenomenon, based on assuming the Lorentz-invariance violation. In this talk I shall show that the dispersion phenomenon of gamma-ray in an interstellar space considered as a cosmic plasma can explain this effect. This in turn indicates that invoking the drastic assumption of Lorentz-invariance violation for such a problem can be premature.
