The OPERA experiment was designed to search for ν_{μ}→ν_{τ} oscillations in appearance mode, i.e., by detecting the τ leptons produced in charged current ν_{τ} interactions. The experiment took data from 2008 to 2012 in the CERN Neutrinos to Gran Sasso beam. The observation of the ν_{μ}→ν_{τ} appearance, achieved with four candidate events in a subsample of(More)
Using gamma-ray data collected by the AGILE satellite over a period of almost one year (from 2007 July to 2008 June), we searched for pulsed signal from 35 potentially interesting radio pulsars, ordered according to F γ ∝ √ ˙ Ed −2 and for which contemporary or recent radio data were available. AGILE detected 3 new top-ranking nearby and Vela-like pulsars(More)
GRB 080514B is the first gamma ray burst (GRB), since the time of EGRET, for which individual photons of energy above several tens of MeV have been detected with a pair-conversion tracker telescope. This burst was discovered with the Italian AGILE gamma-ray satellite. The GRB was localized with a cooperation by AGILE and the interplanetary network (IPN).(More)
We report on a multiwavelength observation of the blazar 3C 454.3 (which we dubbed crazy diamond) carried out on November 2007 by means of the astro-physical satellites AGILE, INTEGRAL, Swift, the WEBT Consortium, and the optical-NIR telescope REM. Thanks to the wide field of view (FoV) of the AGILE satellite and its prompt alert dissemination to other(More)
