Study of mass composition of cosmic rays with IceTop and IceCube

  title={Study of mass composition of cosmic rays with IceTop and IceCube},
  author={Paras Koundal and Matthias Plum and Julian Saffer},
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is a multi-component detector at the South Pole which detects high-energy particles emerging from astrophysical events. These particles provide us with insights into the fundamental properties and behaviour of their sources. Besides its principal usage and merits in neutrino astronomy, using IceCube in conjunction with its surface array, IceTop, also makes it a unique three-dimensional cosmic-ray detector. This distinctive feature helps facilitate detailed… Expand

Graph Neural Networks for IceCube Signal Classification
This work leverages graph neural networks to improve signal detection in the IceCube neutrino observatory and demonstrates the effectiveness of the GNN architecture on a task classifying IceCube events, where it outperforms both a traditional physics-based method as well as classical 3D convolution neural networks.

PyTorch: An Imperative Style, High-Performance Deep Learning Library
This paper details the principles that drove the implementation of PyTorch and how they are reflected in its architecture, and explains how the careful and pragmatic implementation of the key components of its runtime enables them to work together to achieve compelling performance. Expand
Fast Graph Representation Learning with PyTorch Geometric
PyTorch Geometric is introduced, a library for deep learning on irregularly structured input data such as graphs, point clouds and manifolds, built upon PyTorch, and a comprehensive comparative study of the implemented methods in homogeneous evaluation scenarios is performed. Expand
A convolutional neural network based cascade reconstruction for the IceCube Neutrino Observatory
A reconstruction method based on convolutional architectures and hexagonally shaped kernels is presented that can improve upon the reconstruction accuracy, while reducing the time necessary to run the reconstruction by two to three orders of magnitude. Expand
