  • IceCube is a neutrino observatory deployed in the glacial ice at the geographic South Pole. The $$\nu _\mu $$νμ energy unfolding described in this paper is based on data taken with IceCube in its 79-string configuration. A sample of muon neutrino charged-current interactions with a purity of 99.5% was selected by means of a multivariate classification process based on machine learning. The subsequent unfolding was performed using the software Truee. The resulting spectrum covers an E$$_\nu… CONTINUE READING
