In multi-messenger astronomy, rapid investigation of interesting transients is imperative. As an observatory with a 4π steradian field of view, and ∼99% uptime, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory is a unique facility to follow up transients, as well as to provide valuable insights for other observatories and inform their observational decisions. Since 2016, IceCube has been using low-latency data to rapidly respond to interesting astrophysical events reported by the multi-messenger observational… 
Is the High-energy Neutrino Event IceCube-200530A Associated with a Hydrogen-rich Superluminous Supernova?
The Zwicky Transient Facility follow-up campaign of alerts released by the IceCube Neutrino Observatory has led to the likely identification of the transient AT2019fdr as the source of the neutrino
High energy particles from young supernovae: gamma-ray and neutrino connections
Young core-collapse supernovae (YSNe) are factories of high-energy neutrinos and gamma-rays as the shock accelerated protons efficiently interact with the protons in the dense circumstellar medium.
High‐Energy Neutrinos from the Cosmos
The IceCube project transformed a cubic kilometer of transparent natural Antarctic ice into a Cherenkov detector. It discovered PeV‐energy neutrinos originating beyond our galaxy with an energy flux


Search for neutrino counterparts of catalogedgravitational-wave events detected byAdvanced-LIGO and Virgo during run O2 withANTARES
An offline search for a neutrino counterpart to gravitational-wave (GW) events detected during the second observation run (O2) of Advanced-LIGO and Advanced-Virgo performed with ANTARES data is
Searches for point-like sources of cosmic neutrinos with 13 years of ANTARES data
The main goal of the ANTARES neutrino telescope is the identification of neutrinos from cosmic accelerators. The good visibility towards the Southern sky for neutrino energies below 100 TeV and the
Characteristics of the Diffuse Astrophysical Electron and Tau Neutrino Flux with Six Years of IceCube High Energy Cascade Data.
This analysis provides the most detailed characterization of the neutrino flux at energies below ∼100  TeV compared to previous IceCube results, and suggests the existence of astrophysical neutrinos sources characterized by dense environments which are opaque to gamma rays.
A fast radio burst associated with a Galactic magnetar.
The discovery of FRB 200428 implies that active magnetars such as SGR 1935+2154 can produce FRBs at extragalactic distances, and favours emission models that describe synchrotron masers or electromagnetic pulses powered by magnetar bursts and giant flares.
Teraelectronvolt emission from the γ-ray burst GRB 190114C
Observations of teraelectronvolt emission from the γ-ray burst GRB 190114C reveal a distinct component of the afterglow emission with power comparable to that of the synchrotron emission.

Implications from ASKAP Fast Radio Burst Statistics
Although there has recently been tremendous progress in studies of fast radio bursts (FRBs), the nature of their progenitors remains a mystery. We study the fluence and dispersion measure (DM)
A fast-evolving luminous transient discovered by K2/Kepler
For decades, optical time-domain searches have been tuned to find ordinary supernovae, which rise and fall in brightness over a period of weeks. Recently, supernova searches have improved their
We present observations of four rapidly rising (trise ≈ 10 days) transients with peak luminosities between those of supernovae (SNe) and superluminous SNe (Mpeak ≈ −20)—one discovered and followed by
Rapidly evolving and luminous transients from Pan-STARRS1
In the past decade, several rapidly evolving transients have been discovered whose timescales and luminosities are not easily explained by traditional supernovae (SNe) models. The sample size of
