Boosted dark matter in IceCube and at the galactic center

A bstractWe show that event excess observed by the IceCube collaboration at TeV-PeV energies, usually interpreted as evidence for astrophysical neutrinos, can be explained alternatively by the

Evidence for High-Energy Extraterrestrial Neutrinos at the IceCube Detector

TLDR
The presence of a high-energy neutrino flux containing the most energetic neutrinos ever observed is revealed, including 28 events at energies between 30 and 1200 TeV, although the origin of this flux is unknown and the findings are consistent with expectations for a neutRino population with origins outside the solar system.

Observation of high-energy neutrinos using Čerenkov detectors embedded deep in Antarctic ice

TLDR
The detection of upwardly propagating atmospheric neutrinos by the ice-based Antarctic muon and neutrino detector array (AMANDA) is reported, establishing a technology with which to build a kilometre-scale neutrini observatory necessary for astrophysical observations.

Neutrino Astronomy with the MACRO Detector

High-energy gamma-ray astronomy is now a well-established field, and several sources have been discovered in the region from a few giga-electron volts up to several tera-electron volts. If sources

Observation of high-energy astrophysical neutrinos in three years of IceCube data.

TLDR
Results from an analysis with a third year of data from the complete IceCube detector are consistent with the previously reported astrophysical flux in the 100 TeV-PeV range at the level of 10(-8)  GeV cm-2 s-1 sr-1 per flavor and reject a purely atmospheric explanation for the combined three-year data at 5.7σ.

An absence of neutrinos associated with cosmic-ray acceleration in γ-ray bursts

TLDR
An upper limit on the flux of energetic neutrinos associated with GRBs that is at least a factor of 3.7 below the predictions is reported, implying either that GRBs are not the only sources of cosmic rays with energies exceeding 1018 electronvolts or that the efficiency of neutrino production is much lower than has been predicted.

Measurement of the atmospheric νe flux in IceCube.

TLDR
This constitutes the first observation of electron neutrinos and neutral current interactions in a very large volume neutrino telescope optimized for the TeV energy range.

SEARCHES FOR POINT-LIKE AND EXTENDED NEUTRINO SOURCES CLOSE TO THE GALACTIC CENTER USING THE ANTARES NEUTRINO TELESCOPE

A search for cosmic neutrino sources using six years of data collected by the ANTARES neutrino telescope has been performed. Clusters of muon neutrinos over the expected atmospheric background have

Measurement of atmospheric neutrino oscillations with IceCube.

We present the first statistically significant detection of neutrino oscillations in the high-energy regime (>20 GeV) from an analysis of IceCube Neutrino Observatory data collected in 2010 and 2011.
