We evaluate the charged current neutrino-nucleon total cross section up to neutrino energies of ${10}^{12}\text{ }\text{ }\mathrm{GeV}$ in the leading order and next-to-leading order of perturbative QCD within the framework of two different factorization schemes. The numerical implications of some inconsistent QCD calculations are illustrated.

Extracting the Energy-Dependent Neutrino-Nucleon Cross Section above 10 TeV Using IceCube Showers.

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.

Complete predictions for high-energy neutrino propagation in matter

We present predictions for the interactions of energetic neutrinos with matter as they propagate through Earth towards large-volume detectors. Our results are based on state-of-the-art calculations

Measurement of the Energy-Dependent Neutrino-Nucleon Cross Section Above 10 TeV Using IceCube Showers

Neutrinos are key to probing the deep structure of matter and the high-energy Universe. Yet, until recently, their interactions had only been measured at laboratory energies up to about 350 GeV. An

DGLAP Evolutions and Cross-Sections of Neutrino-Nucleon Interaction at Ultra High Energy

We determine the UHE neutrino-nucleon cross-sections analytically both for charged and neutral current in the leading order by using the solutions of non-singlet DGLAP equation as well as singlet

The ultra-high-energy neutrino-nucleon cross section: measurement forecasts for an era of cosmic EeV-neutrino discovery

Abstract Neutrino interactions with protons and neutrons probe their deep structure and may reveal new physics. The higher the neutrino energy, the sharper the probe. So far, the neutrino-nucleon

Neutrino propagation in the Earth and emerging charged leptons with $\texttt{nuPyProp}$

. Ultra-high-energy neutrinos serve as messengers of some of the highest energy astrophysical environments. Given that neutrinos are neutral and only interact via weak interactions, neutrinos can

Near-future discovery of the diffuse flux of ultra-high-energy cosmic neutrinos

Ultra-high-energy (UHE) neutrinos, with EeV-scale energies, carry with them unique insight into fundamental open questions in astrophysics and particle physics. For fifty years, they have evaded



Quark mass effects in high energy neutrino-nucleon scattering

We evaluate the neutrino-nucleon charged-current cross section at next-to-leading order in quantum chromodynamic corrections in the variable flavor number scheme and the fixed flavor number scheme,
