"High Energy Astrophysics Seminar: High-Energy Neutrinos as New Cosmic Messengers"

Thu, 04/09/2014 - 13:00 to 14:00

Kaplun building, Room No. 200
Prof. Kohta MuraseIn, Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) Abstract: 2013, the IceCube collaboration reported 28 events of high-energy neutrino events. They are likely to contain extraterrestrial signals, and it is the dawn of a new age of neutrino astrophysics. In this talk, I try to demystify the origin of the observed neutrino signals. I discuss various astrophysical possibilities, and then demonstrate the power of the multi-messenger approach to reveal the origin.
