Kilometer-scale neutrino detectors such as IceCube are discovery instruments covering nuclear and particle physics, cosmology and astronomy. Examples of their multidisciplinary missions include the search for the particle nature of dark matter and for additional small dimensions of space. In the end, their conceptual design is very much anchored to the observational fact that Nature accelerates protons and photons to energies in excess of 10^{20} and 10^{13} eV, respectively. The cosmic ray… Expand

Neutrinos—Inner Properties and Role as Astrophysical Messengers
The observed flavor oscillations of solar and atmospheric neutrinos determine several elements of the leptonic mixing matrix, but leave open the small mixing angle Θ13, a possible CP-violating phase,Expand
Review of astroparticle physics
Observational cosmology is currently in its golden years. Using a variety of observational techniques the anisotropy of the CMB and the large-scale structure of the Universe is explored. InExpand
Low energy antideuterons: shedding light on dark matter
Low energy antideuterons suffer a very low secondary and tertiary astrophysical background, while they can be abundantly synthesized in dark matter pair annihilations, therefore providing aExpand
e+e- Pair production from 10 GeV to 10 ZeV
Abstract At very high energies, pair production ( γ → e + e - ) exhibits many interesting features. The momentum transfer from the target is very small, so the reaction probes the macroscopicExpand
Mixed wino dark matter: Consequences for direct, indirect and collider detection
In supersymmetric models with gravity-mediated SUSY breaking and gaugino mass unification, the predicted relic abundance of neutralinos usually exceeds the strict limits imposed by the WMAPExpand
Collider signals and neutralino dark matter detection in relic-density-consistent models without universality
We present brief synopses of supersymmetric models where either the neutralino composition or its mass is adjusted so that thermal relic neutralinos from the Big Bang saturate the measured abundanceExpand
Implications of compressed supersymmetry for collider and dark matter searches
Martin has proposed a scenario dubbed ``compressed supersymmetry'' (SUSY) where the MSSM is the effective field theory between energy scales Mweak and MGUT, but with the GUT scale SU(3) gaugino massExpand
Mixed Higgsino dark matter from a reduced SU(3) gaugino mass: Consequences for dark matter and collider searches
In gravity-mediated SUSY breaking models with non-universal gaugino masses, lowering the SU(3) gaugino mass |M3| leads to a reduction in the squark and gluino masses. Lower third generation squarkExpand
Dark Matter And $B_s \to \mu^+ \mu^-$ With Minimal $SO_{10}$ Soft SUSY Breaking II
CMSSM boundary conditions are usually used when calculating cosmological dark matter densities. In this paper we calculate the cosmological density of dark matter in the MSSM using minimal $SO_{10}$Expand
Exploring the BWCA (Bino-Wino co-annihilation) scenario for neutralino dark matter
In supersymmetric models with non-universal gaugino masses, it is possible to have opposite-sign SU(2) and U(1) gaugino mass terms. In these models, the gaugino eigenstates experience little mixingExpand

We elucidate the physical basis for the upper bound on high energy neutrino fluxes implied by the observed cosmic ray flux. We stress that the bound is valid for neutrinos produced either byExpand
