Search for stellar gravitational collapses with the MACRO detector

We present the final results of the search for stellar gravitational collapses obtained by the MACRO experiment. The detector was active for a stellar collapse search for more than 11 years and it

Jun 02 Status Report of the MACRO Experiment for the year 2001 MACRO

In this 2001 status report of the MACRO experiment, results are presented on atmospheric neutrinos and neutrino oscillations, high energy neutrino astronomy, searches for WIMPs, search for low energy

Search for core-collapse supernovae using the MiniBooNE neutrino detector

We present a search for core-collapse supernovae in the Milky Way galaxy, using the MiniBooNE neutrino detector. No evidence is found for core-collapse supernovae occurring in our Galaxy in the

New MACRO results on atmospheric neutrino oscillations

The final results of the MACRO experiment on atmospheric neutrino oscillations are presented and discussed. The data concern different event topologies with average neutrino energies of ∼3 and ∼50

Semi-contained interactions of atmospheric neutrinos in the MACRO detector

Atmospheric neutrinos arise from the decay of particles (primarily pions, muons and kaons) produced in the collision of high energy cosmic ray particles with the atmosphere. The great distances

Measurements of atmospheric muon neutrino oscillations, global analysis of the data collected with MACRO detector

The final analysis of atmospheric neutrino events collected with the MACRO detector is presented. Three different classes of events, generated by neutrinos in different energy ranges, are studied l

Supernova neutrino spectrum with matter and spin flavour precession effects

We consider Majorana neutrino conversions inside supernovae by taking into account both flavour mixing and the neutrino magnetic moment. We study the adiabaticity of various possible transitions



Observation of a neutrino burst in coincidence with supernova 1987A in the Large Magellanic Cloud.

A burst of eight neutrino events preceding the optical detection of the supernova in the Large Magellanic cloud has been observed in a large underground water Cherenkov detector. The events span an

On the Event Observed in the Mont Blanc Underground Neutrino Observatory during the Occurrence of Supernova 1987a

We discuss here the characteristics of the event detected in the Mont Blanc Underground Neutrino Observatory on February 23, 1987, consisting of 5 interactions recorded during 7s. The measured

Observation of a neutrino burst from the supernova SN1987A.

A neutrono burst was observed in the KAMIOKANDE-II detector on 23 February during a time interval of 13 seconds and consisted of 11 electron events of energy 7.5 to 36 MeV with angles 18°±18° and 15°±27°.

Models for the Galaxy and the Predicted Star Counts

A detailed model is constructed for the disk and spheroid components of the Galaxy from which the distribution of visible stars and mass in the Galaxy is calculated. The application of star counts to

The future of supernova neutrino detection.

A detailed fiducial model of supernova neutrino bursts is constructed that incorporates the numerous emission features derived and predicted by supernova and protoneutron star theorists during the last decade.
