Spectral and flavor composition of the ultrahigh energy neutrinos seen at IceCube
Time: 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Aaron Vincent, Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology , Durham University
Abstract: I will present the main elements of our independent studies of the high-energy events seen above 28TeV by IceCube, arXiv:1404.0017 and arXiv:1502.02649. I will cover the physics involved, and show the effect of modelling and assumptions on the conclusions one can reach about the flavor composition, spectrum, and background rates. I will compare our results and methodology with the official IceCube studies, and discuss future prospects.
