High-energy neutrinos from cosmic ray interactions in the local bubble
A surprisingly large flux of extraterrestrial high-energy neutrinos was discovered by the IceCube experiment. While the flux of muon neutrinos with energies $E>100$ TeV is consistent with the
Cosmic-ray astronomy at the highest energies with ten years of data of the Pierre Auger observatory
Identifying the sources of the ultra-high energy cosmic rays (UHECRs, above 10^{18} eV), the most energetic particles known in the universe, would be an important leap forward for both the
On the Observation of the Cosmic Ray Anisotropy below 10$^{15}$ eV
The measurement of the anisotropy in the arrival direction of cosmic rays is complementary to the study of their energy spectrum and chemical composition to understand their origin and propagation.

Origin of IceCube's Astrophysical Neutrinos: Autocorrelation, Multi-Point-Source and Time-Structured Searches
The IceCube neutrino observatory build in the Antarctic ice offers unique opportunities in studying high energy neutrino emission from galactic and extra-galactic sources and could give invaluable
Angular Power Spectra with Finite Counts
Angular anisotropy techniques for cosmic diffuse radiation maps are powerful probes, even for quite small data sets. A popular observable is the angular power spectrum; we present a detailed study
Cosmic Ray Transport with Magnetic Focusing and the "Telegraph" model
Cosmic rays (CR), constrained by scattering on magnetic irregularities, are believed to propagate diffusively. But a well-known defect of diffusive approximation whereby some of the particles


Observation of cosmic-ray anisotropy with the icetop air shower array
We report on the observation of anisotropy in the arrival direction distribution of cosmic rays at PeV energies. The analysis is based on data taken between 2009 and 2012 with the IceTop air shower
Observation of anisotropy in the galactic cosmic-ray arrival directions at 400 TeV with IceCube
In this paper we report the first observation in the Southern hemisphere of an energy dependence in the Galactic cosmic-ray anisotropy up to a few hundred TeV. This measurement was performed using
Observation of anisotropy in the arrival directions of galactic cosmic rays at multiple angular scales with IceCube
Between 2009 May and 2010 May, the IceCube neutrino detector at the South Pole recorded 32 billion muons generated in air showers produced by cosmic rays with a median energy of 20 TeV. With a data
Measurement of the Anisotropy of Cosmic Ray Arrival Directions with IceCube
We report the first observation of an anisotropy in the arrival direction of cosmic rays with energies in the multi-TeV region in the Southern sky using data from the IceCube detector. Between 2007
Cosmic rays in the energy range from about tens of GeV to several hundreds of TeV are observed on Earth, with an energy-dependent anisotropy of order 0.01%-0.1% and a consistent topology that appears
Cosmic rays and stochastic magnetic reconnection in the heliotail
Abstract. Galactic cosmic rays are believed to be generated by diffusive shock acceleration processes in Supernova Remnants, and the arrival direction is likely determined by the distribution of
We investigate the temporal and spectral correlations between flux and anisotropy fluctuations of TeV-band cosmic rays in light of recent data taken with IceCube. We find that for a conventional
Local magnetic turbulence and TeV-PeV cosmic ray anisotropies.
It is demonstrated here that energy dependent smaller scale anisotropies naturally arise from the local concrete realization of the turbulent magnetic field within the cosmic ray scattering length, and it is shown how such an isotropies could be calculated if the magnetic field structure within a few tens of parsecs from Earth were known.
Radioactivity and fragmentation of UHECR: Correlating gamma anisotropy and neutrino PEV events
UHECR (Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays) were expected to be protons, to fly straight and to suffer from a GZK (opacity on CMB radiation) cut off. AUGER suggested in 2007 that such early UHECR
