We simulate neutrino production in a gamma-ray burst (GRB) with the most detailed method to date. We show that the highest energy neutrinos from GRBs mainly come from kaons. Although there is little chance to detect such neutrinos, attempts of detection are very important to prove physical conditions in GRBs.

Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are the possible sources of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs), because of the extreme values of ultra-relativistic velocities and strong magnetic fields. In this paper we
Ultrahigh energy neutrinos: Theoretical aspects
Ultrahigh energy (UHE) neutrinos can be produced by cosmic rays (CR) interactions with gas or photons in their sources, with cosmic microwave background photons during propagation, and by top-down
Limits on neutrino emission from gamma-ray bursts with the 40 string IceCube detector.
Two separate analyses using the half-complete IceCube detector produced no evidence for neutrinos from pγ interactions in the prompt phase of the gamma-ray burst fireball.
Searching for an Ultra High-Energy Diffuse Flux of Extraterrestrial Neutrinos with IceCube 40
Neutrino astronomy has the potential to greatly improve our understanding of the high-energy universe. An unresolved, diffuse, flux of neutrinos is sensitive to the properties of the population of
Neutrino emission from a gamma-ray burst afterglow shock during an inner supernova shock breakout
The observations of a nearby low-luminosity gamma-ray burst (GRB) 060218 associated with supernova SN 2006aj may imply an interesting astronomical picture where a supernova shock breakout locates
Diffuse emission of high-energy neutrinos from gamma-ray burst fireballs
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) have been suggested as possible sources of the high-energy neutrino flux recently detected by the IceCube telescope. We revisit the fireball emission model and elaborate an

The detection of the predicted GRB neutrino signal, which may become possible in the coming few years, will allow one to identify the sources of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays and to resolve open questions related to the underlying physics of GRB models.
Gamma-Ray Bursts as Multienergy Neutrino Sources
We review theoretical models for nonelectromagnetic emission, mainly neutrinos and cosmic rays, from gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). In various stages of the relativistic jet propagation, cosmic-ray ion
Secondary Photons from High-Energy Protons Accelerated in Hypernovae
Recent observations show that hypernovae may deposit some fraction of their kinetic energy in mildly relativistic ejecta. In the dissipation process of such ejecta in a stellar wind, cosmic-ray
High Energy Neutrino Emission from the Earliest Gamma-Ray Bursts
We discuss the high energy neutrino emission from gamma-ray bursts resulting from the earliest generation (``population III'') stars forming in the Universe, whose core collapses into a black hole.


Using Monte Carlo simulations, we demonstrate photopion production from Fermi-accelerated protons and the resulting neutrino production in gamma-ray bursts. Unless internal shocks occur at quite
High-energy neutrinos from gamma ray bursts.
Detailed calculations of photomeson neutrino production are presented for the collapsar model, where internal nonthermal synchrotron radiation is the primary target photon field, and the supranova model,where external pulsar-wind synch rotary radiation provides important additional target photons.
TeV neutrinos from successful and choked gamma-ray bursts.
This simulation predicts that core collapse of massive stars resulting in a relativistic fireball jet which breaks through the stellar envelope should be easily detectable by planned 1 km(3) neutrino telescopes.
Revealing the supernova-gamma-ray burst connection with TeV neutrinos.
The neutrino spectra from the decays of pions and kaons produced in jets in supernovae are calculated, and it is shown that the kaon contribution is dominant and provides a sharp break near 20 TeV, which is a sensitive probe of the conditions inside the jet.
Prospects for observations of high-energy cosmic tau neutrinos
We study the prospects for the observation of high-energy cosmic tau neutrinos $(Eg~{10}^{6}$ GeV) originating from proton acceleration in the cores of active galactic nuclei. We consider the

Observations imply that gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are produced by the dissipation of the kinetic energy of a highly relativistic fireball. Photo-meson interactions of protons with gamma-rays within the

The TeV neutrino signatures expected from such slower jets are explored, and the expected detection rates with upcoming Gigaton Cherenkov experiments are calculated, concluding that individual jetted supernovae may be detectable from nearby galaxies.
Gamma-ray bursts from the first stars: neutrino signals
If the first (PopIII) stars were very massive, their final fate is to collapse into very massive black holes. Once a proto-black hole has formed into the stellar core, accretion continues through a
