Ultraluminous infrared galaxies (ULIRGs) are the most luminous and intense starburst galaxies in the Universe. Both their star formation rates and their gas surface mass densities are very high, implying a high supernova rate and an efficient energy conversion of energetic protons. A small fraction of these supernovae are the so-called hypernovae, with a typical kinetic energy similar to 10(52) erg and a shock velocity >= 10(9) cm s(-1). The strong shocks driven by hypernovae are able to…

EXTRAGALACTIC STAR-FORMING GALAXIES WITH HYPERNOVAE AND SUPERNOVAE AS HIGH-ENERGY NEUTRINO AND GAMMA-RAY SOURCES: THE CASE OF THE 10 TeV NEUTRINO DATA

In light of the latest IceCube data, we discuss the implications of the cosmic ray (CR) energy input from hypernovae (HNe) and supernovae (SNe) into the universe, and their propagation in the hosting

High-Energy Neutrino Production in Clusters of Galaxies

Clusters of galaxies can potentially produce cosmic rays (CRs) up to very high energies via large-scale shocks and turbulent acceleration. Due to their unique magnetic-field configuration, CRs with

STAR-FORMING GALAXIES AS THE ORIGIN OF THE ICECUBE PeV NEUTRINOS

Star-forming galaxies, due to their high star formation rates, and hence large number of supernova remnants (SNRs) therein, are huge reservoirs of cosmic rays (CRs). These CRs collide with gases in

Contribution of starburst nuclei to the diffuse gamma-ray and neutrino flux

In nuclei of starburst galaxies (SBGs), the combination of an enhanced rate of supernova explosions and a high gas density suggests that cosmic rays (CRs) can be efficiently produced, and that most

THE DIFFUSE GAMMA-RAY FLUX ASSOCIATED WITH SUB-PEV/PEV NEUTRINOS FROM STARBURST GALAXIES

One attractive scenario for the excess of sub-PeV/PeV neutrinos recently reported by IceCube is that they are produced by cosmic rays in starburst galaxies colliding with the dense interstellar

REVISITING THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF SUPERNOVA AND HYPERNOVA REMNANTS TO THE DIFFUSE HIGH-ENERGY BACKGROUNDS: CONSTRAINTS ON VERY HIGH REDSHIFT INJECTION

Star-forming and starburst galaxies are considered one of the viable candidate sources of the high-energy cosmic neutrino background detected in IceCube. We revisit contributions of supernova

Do high energy astrophysical neutrinos trace star formation?

The IceCube Neutrino Observatory has provided the first map of the high energy (∼ 0.01–1 PeV) sky in neutrinos. Since neutrinos propagate undeflected, their arrival direction is an important

NEUTRINO CONSTRAINTS TO THE DIFFUSE GAMMA-RAY EMISSION FROM ACCRETION SHOCKS

Accretion of gas during the large-scale structure formation has been thought to give rise to shocks that can accelerate cosmic rays. This process then results in an isotropic extragalactic gamma-ray
