Light Sterile Neutrinos: A White Paper
This white paper addresses the hypothesis of light sterile neutrinos based on recent anomalies observed in neutrino experiments and the latest astrophysical data.
We discuss simplified models for photo-meson production in cosmic accelerators, such as active galactic nuclei (AGNs) and gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). Our self-consistent models are directly based on the
Neutrino emission from gamma-ray burst fireballs, revised.
It is concluded that the baryonic loading of the fireballs, which is an important control parameter for the emission of cosmic rays, can be constrained significantly with the full-scale experiment after about ten years.
Letter of Intent: The Precision IceCube Next Generation Upgrade (PINGU)
The Precision IceCube Next Generation Upgrade (PINGU) is a proposed low-energy in-fill array of the IceCube Neutrino Observatory that will feature the world's largest effective volume for neutrinos at an energy threshold of a few GeV, improving the sensitivity to several aspects of neutrino oscillation physics at modest cost.
Systematic study of the d = 5 Weinberg operator at one-loop order
A bstractWe perform a systematic study of the d = 5 Weinberg operator at the one-loop level. We identify three different categories of neutrino mass generation: (1) finite irreducible diagrams; (2)
Interpretation of the Diffuse Astrophysical Neutrino Flux in Terms of the Blazar Sequence
We study if the diffuse astrophysical neutrino flux can come from blazar jets -- a subclass of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGNs) -- while it, at the same time, respects the blazar stacking limit based on
Neutrino mass hierarchy determination with IceCube-PINGU
We discuss the neutrino mass hierarchy determination with atmospheric neutrinos in PINGU (\Precision IceCube Next Generation Upgrade"), based on a simulation with the GLoBES software including the
