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. With no excess events seen, an upper limit of Eν × dNν/dEν< 7.4×10−8 GeV cm−2 s−1 sr−1was obtained. The sensitivity of the diffuse analysis of IceCube 9 string for 137 days of data is calculated to be Eν × dNν/dEν< 1.3× 10−7 GeV cm−2 s−1 sr−1. No excess events are observed, which confirms the… Expand
Muons in IceCube
The IceCube detector allows for the first time a measurement of atmospheric muon and neutrino energy spectra from tens of GeV up to the PeV range. The lepton flux in the highest energy region dependsExpand
Multi-year search for a diffuse flux of muon neutrinos with AMANDA-II
A search for TeV to PeV muon neutrinos from unresolved sources was performed on AMANDA-II data collected between 2000 to 2003. The diffuse analysis sought to identify an extraterrestrial neutrinoExpand

The exact formulae for the capture of WIMPS (weakly interacting massive particles) by a massive body are derived. Capture by the earth is found to be significantly enhanced whenever the WIMP mass isExpand
Indirect search for neutralino dark matter with high energy neutrinos
