The search for high energy neutrinos of astryphysical origin is being conducted today with two water/ice Cherenkov experiments. New instruments of higher performance are now in construction and more are in the the R&D phase. No sources have been found to date. Upper limits on neutrino fluxes are approaching model predictions. Results are reported on the search for point sources, diffuse fluxes, gamma ray bursts, dark matter and other sources.

Neutrino oscillations in gravitational and cosmological backgrounds
We use the eikonal approximation in order to calculate the additional phase shift between two neutrino mass eigenstates during their propagation in a background of gravitational wave or scalarExpand


Neutrino astrophysics and telescopes
The interest in detecting high energy neutrinos of astrophysical origin is motivated by the potentials of these weakly interacting particles. As a matter of fact, they would open a new window on theExpand
Limits on the ultra-high energy electron neutrino flux from the RICE experiment
Abstract Upper limits are presented on the diffuse flux of ultra-high energy νe, based on analysis of data taken by the RICE experiment during August, 2000. The RICE receiver array at South PoleExpand

Performance and simulation of the RICE detector
Abstract The Radio Ice Cherenkov Experiment at the South Pole, co-deployed with the AMANDA experiment, seeks to detect ultra-high energy electron neutrinos interacting in cold polar ice. SuchExpand
Flux limits on ultra high energy neutrinos with AMANDA-B10
Abstract Data taken during 1997 with the AMANDA-B10 detector are searched for a diffuse flux of neutrinos of all flavors with energies above 10 16  eV. At these energies the Earth is opaque toExpand
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.Expand

Limits on diffuse fluxes of high energy extraterrestrial neutrinos with the AMANDA-B10 detector.
Data from the AMANDA-B10 detector taken during the austral winter of 1997 have been searched for a diffuse flux of high energy extraterrestrial muon neutrinos, leading to upper limits on the extraterrestrial neutrino flux measured at the earth. Expand
