Using data obtained by the gamma-ray imager on board of the AGILE satellite, we systematically searched for transient gamma-ray sources above 100 MeV in temporal and spatial coincidence with high-energy neutrino IceCube events. We found some significant gamma-ray transients possibly associated with HESE neutrinos recently detected by the IceCube experiment. In this talk, we review the AGILE...

The ANTARES detector is the largest neutrino telescope currently in operation in Mediterranean sea. One of the main goals of the ANTARES telescope is the search for point-like neutrino sources, so both the pointing accuracy and the angular resolution of the detector need a proper direct estimation. One possibility to evaluate the pointing performance of the detector is to analyse the shadow of...

The TeV/PeV neutrino emission from our Galaxy is related to the population of cosmic-ray accelerators, their activity duration, the maximal energy of injected cosmic rays as well as their propagation and the massive molecular clouds presence. Interesting upper limits on diffuse hadronic emission from the Galactic plane, the Fermi Bubbles and the more massive molecular cloud regions were set in...

MAGIC, a system of two Cherenkov telescopes located at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory (2200 a.s.l.) in the Canary Island of La Palma, has lately been engaged in an unconventional task: the search for a signature of particle showers induced by earth-skimming cosmic tau neutrinos arising from the ocean, in the PeV to EeV energy range. When pointing at the Sea, the MAGIC telescopes can...

The presence of dense clumps in the environment where a supernova remnant (SNR) expands might have a strong impact in shaping the observed hadronic gamma-ray spectrum. I will here present a detailed numerical study about the penetration of relativistic protons into clumps which are engulfed by a SNR shock, taking into account the magneto-hydrodynamical properties of the background plasma. In...

Core Collapse Supernovae (CCSN) are explosive phenomena that may occur at the end of the life of massive stars, releasing over 99% of the energy through emission of neutrinos with energies on the 10 MeV scale. While the explosion mechanics is not fully understood, neutrinos are believed to play an important role in it. The only detection as of today are the 24 neutrinos from supernova SN1987A....
