Atmospheric neutrinos produced by cosmic-ray interactions around the globe provide a beam for the study of neutrino properties. They are also a background in searches for neutrinos of astrophysical origin. Both aspects are addressed in this chapter, which begins with a brief introduction on neutrino oscillations in relation to the spectrum of atmospheric neutrinos. Section 2 describes the cascade equation for hadrons in the atmosphere and the main features of atmospheric leptons from their…

Extracting the Energy-Dependent Neutrino-Nucleon Cross Section above 10 TeV Using IceCube Showers.
TLDR
Using six years of public IceCube High-Energy Starting Events, it is explicitly shown for the first time that the energy dependence of the cross section above 18 TeV agrees with the predicted softer-than-linear dependence, and reaffirm the absence of new physics that would make the crossSection rise sharply, up to a center-of-mass energy sqrt[s]≈1  TeV.

The origin of the highest energy Galactic cosmic rays is still not understood, nor is the transition to EeV extragalactic particles. Scientific progress requires enhancements of existing air-shower

IceCube-Gen2: the window to the extreme Universe
The observation of electromagnetic radiation from radio to $\gamma$-ray wavelengths has provided a wealth of information about the universe. However, at PeV (10$^{15}$ eV) energies and above, most of
