High-energy neutrinos in the context of multimessenger astrophysics

High-energy neutrinos in the context of multimessenger astrophysics

Diese Veröffentlichung gibt einen Überblick über das Feld der Hochenergie-Neutrinoastronomie und den aktuellen Stand bei der Suche nach den Quellen der kosmischen Strahlung. Insbesondere werden galaktische Quellen wie Supernovareste und Binärsysteme, sowie extragalaktische Kandidaten wie aktive Galaxien und Gamma-ray bursts als Quellen der kosmischen Strahlung diskutiert. Hier wird insbesondere ausgeführt, inwiefern diese Quellen als Neutrinoemitter in Frage kommen und mit Hilfe von Neutrinoteleskopen wie IceCube dazu beitragen können, die Quellen der kosmischen Strahlung zu identifizieren.
