Challenges for cosmic-ray experiments
This paper is a commentary on presentations at ISVHECRI 2016 related to cosmic-rays, gamma-rays and neutrinos. Its goal is to highlight the unanswered questions raised during the conference about the
IceCube-Gen2: the window to the extreme Universe
The observation of electromagnetic radiation from radio to $\gamma$-ray wavelengths has provided a wealth of information about the universe. However, at PeV (10$^{15}$ eV) energies and above, most of
Earth versus Neutrinos: Measuring the total muon-neutrino-to-nucleon cross section at ultra-high energies through differential Earth absorption of muon neutrinos from cosmic rays using the IceCube Detector
Author(s): Miarecki, Sandra C. | Advisor(s): Shapiro, Marjorie D.; Klein, Spencer R. | Abstract: The IceCube Neutrino Detector at the South Pole was constructed to measure the flux of high-energy
Incorporating an IceTop veto for cascade events
The IceCube observatory, at the South Pole, includes an array of optical sensors deployed between 1450 and 2450 m below the surface and a surface array of cosmic ray detectors. The deep array,
How Unequal Fluxes of High Energy Astrophysical Neutrinos and Antineutrinos can Fake New Physics
Flavor ratios of very high energy astrophysical neutrinos, which can be studied at the Earth by a neutrino telescope such as IceCube, can serve to diagnose their production mechanism at the
Gamma-ray and Neutrino Lines from Dark Matter: multi-messenger and dedicated smoking-gun searches
I dentifyingwhatmakesup theDarkMatter is a long-standingproblem towhich the abundance of gravitational and cosmological evidence fails to answer. Indirect detection techniques have the aim to unveil
Science with the Cherenkov Telescope Array
The Cherenkov Telescope Array, CTA, will be the major global observatory for very high energy gamma-ray astronomy over the next decade and beyond. The scientific potential of CTA is extremely broad:
Primary spectrum and composition with IceCube/IceTop


The IceCube Collaboration
The AMANDA-II data collected during the period 2000–2003 have been analysed in a search for a diffuse flux of high-energy extra-terrestrial muon neutrinos from the sum of all sources in the Universe.
Simulation Studies for a Surface Veto Array to Identify Astrophysical Neutrinos at the South Pole
Motivated by the discovery of high-energy astrophysical neutrinos with IceCube, we study the prospects for improved measurements of neutrinos of astrophysical origin with a surface array combined
Motivations and Techniques of a Surface Detector to Veto Air Showers for Neutrino Astronomy with IceCube at the Southern Sky
IceCube is currently the world’s largest high-energy neutrino observatory, built at the geographic South Pole. For neutrino astronomy, a large sample of well-reconstructed astrophysical neutrinos of
The Online Follow-Up Framework for Neutrino-Triggered Alerts from IceCube
The approach is generalized and merged into a combined generic framework for neutrino-triggered multi-messenger astronomy, which consists of a single event stream selected at the South Pole and transmitted north, where an online search for transients and flaring points is performed.
Searching for TeV gamma-ray emission associated with IceCube high-energy neutrinos using VERITAS
A clue to finding the long-sought sources of cosmic rays is the recent observation of an astrophysical flux of high-energy neutrinos by the IceCube detector, since these possibly originate in
Correlation between UHECRs measured by the Pierre Auger Observatory and Telescope Array and neutrino candidate events from IceCube
We present the results of three searches for correlations between ultra-high energy cosmic ray events (UHECRs) measured by Telescope Array and the Pierre Auger Observatory and high-energy neutrino

The Precision IceCube Next Generation Upgrade (PINGU) is a proposed low-energy infill extension to the IceCube Observatory. With detection technology modeled closely on the successful IceCube
Neutrino-triggered target-of-opportunity programs in IceCube
IceCube is capable of monitoring the whole sky continuously, while optical and high energy photon telescopes have limited fields of view and are not likely to observe a potential neutrino-flaring
