The IceCube, Pierre Auger and Telescope Array Collaborations have recently reported results on neutral particles (neutrons, photons and neutrinos) which complement the measurements on charged primary cosmic rays at ultra-high energy. The complementarity between these messengers and between their detections are outlined. The current status of their search is reviewed and a cross-correlation analysis between the available results is performed. The expectations for photon and neutrino detections…

Heavy decaying dark matter and large-scale anisotropy of high-energy cosmic rays
We examine the role of the large-scale anisotropy of the high-energy cosmic ray distribution in a search for the heavy decaying dark matter (DM) signal. Using recent anisotropy measurements from the
Lower limit on the ultrahigh-energy proton-to-helium ratio from the measurements of the tail of the Xmax distribution
There are multiple techniques to determine the chemical composition of the ultra-high-energy cosmic rays. While most of the methods are primarily sensitive to the average atomic mass, it is
Constraining heavy decaying dark matter with the high energy gamma-ray limits
We consider decaying dark matter with masses $1{0}^{7}\ensuremath{\lesssim}M\ensuremath{\lesssim}1{0}^{16}\text{ }\text{ }\mathrm{GeV}$ as a source of ultrahigh energy (UHE) gamma rays. Using recent

The current status of searches for ultra-high energy neutrinos and photons using air showers is reviewed. Regarding both physics and observational aspects, possible future research directions are
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.
Improved limit to the diffuse flux of ultrahigh energy neutrinos from the Pierre Auger Observatory
Neutrinos in the cosmic ray flux with energies near 1 EeV and above are detectable with the Surface Detector array (SD) of the Pierre Auger Observatory. We report here on searches through Auger data

Data collected at the Pierre Auger Observatory are used to establish an upper limit on the diffuse flux of tau neutrinos in the cosmic radiation. Earth-skimming nu(tau) may interact in the Earth's
Evidence for High-Energy Extraterrestrial Neutrinos at the IceCube Detector
TLDR
The presence of a high-energy neutrino flux containing the most energetic neutrinos ever observed is revealed, including 28 events at energies between 30 and 1200 TeV, although the origin of this flux is unknown and the findings are consistent with expectations for a neutRino population with origins outside the solar system.
Search for point-like sources of ultra-high energy neutrinos at the Pierre Auger Observatory and improved limit on the diffuse flux of tau neutrinos
The surface detector array of the Pierre Auger Observatory can detect neutrinos with energy E_ν between 10^17 eV and 10^20 eV from point-like sources across the sky south of +55 degrees and north of
