The TAIGA-experiment (Tunka Advanced Instrument for cosmic ray and Gamma ray Astrophysics) aims at gamma-astronomy in the multi-TeV to PeV energy range, using a new hybrid technology to build multi-km2 gamma telescopes at competitive cost. TAIGA uses the synergy of two complementary air shower detection techniques: widely spaced imaging air Cherenkov telescopes (IACTs) and a Cherenkov light...

EAS arrays are wide field-of-view instruments able to monitor all the overhead sky with a close to 100% duty-cycle. Such a detectors are multimessenger observatories by definition allowing a combined study of photon and charged nuclei induced events. All EAS arrays presently in operation or under installation are located in the northern hemisphere. The scientific potential of a...

The optical Cerenkov technique has been tremendously successful and has now measured astrophysical neutrinos up to ~10 PeV. At higher energies, the neutrino fluxes become so low that km^2 detection areas are not enough, and other techniques are needed to cover areas of order 100 km^2 or more. I will give an overview of searches for neutrino-induced showers at the highest energies using radio...
