Evidence for High-Energy Extraterrestrial Neutrinos at the IceCube Detector
Introduction Neutrino observations are a unique probe of the universe’s highest-energy phenomena: Neutrinos are able to escape from dense astrophysical environments that photons cannot and areExpand

Search for dark matter annihilations in the sun with the 79-string IceCube detector.
We have performed a search for muon neutrinos from dark matter annihilation in the center of the Sun with the 79-string configuration of the IceCube neutrino telescope. For the first time, theExpand

First observation of the Greisen-Zatsepin-Kuzmin suppression.
The High Resolution Fly's Eye (HiRes) experiment has observed the Greisen-Zatsepin-Kuzmin suppression (called the GZK cutoff) with a statistical significance of five standard deviations. HiRes'Expand

First observation of PeV-energy neutrinos with IceCube.
We report on the observation of two neutrino-induced events which have an estimated deposited energy in the IceCube detector of 1.04±0.16 and 1.14±0.17 PeV, respectively, the highest neutrinoExpand

Limits on a muon flux from neutralino annihilations in the sun with the IceCube 22-string detector.
A search for muon neutrinos from neutralino annihilations in the Sun has been performed with the IceCube 22-string neutrino detector using data collected in 104.3 days of live time in 2007. No excessExpand
