Detections of the electromagnetic counterparts to gravitational wave (GW) observations will be critical to understanding the astrophysical phenomena involved. However, in many cases – especially early in the advanced LIGO/Virgo era – the localization of GW transients will be poor, and follow-up observations will be required to rapidly search 100 – 1000 square degrees of the sky. Relatively few...

Models where Dark Matter (DM) is secluded from the Standard Model via a mediator have increased their presence during the last decade to explain some experimental observations. This is a special scenario where DM, which would gravitationally accumulate in sources like the Sun, the Earth or the Galactic Centre, is annihilated into a non-standard Model mediator which subsequently decays into...

Highest energy neutrino (above atmospheric noise) has been disentangled recently by ICECUBE. The dominance of the Cascade Shower events over muon neutrino tracks has been well established; the absence of the Glashow anti neutrino - electron resonance has been also noted. Therefore the probable paucity of Tens PeV up to EeV neutrino flux makes still difficult the fluorescence detection of the...

The ANTARES neutrino telescope is the largest water Cherenkov neutrino telescope in operation in the Northern hemisphere, installed in the Mediterranean Sea. One of the main objectives of ANTARES is the searches for neutrinos produced in self-annihilation of Dark Matter particles. Results on the search for Dark Matter annihilations in the Sun will be presented. The obtained competitive limits...

The KM3NeT European experiment aims to construct a large volume underwater neutrino telescope, to be installed in the depths of the Mediterranean Sea. Thanks to a dedicated funding provided by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) with PON 2007-2013 resources, in a first phase, commonly referred as KM3NeT-Italia, an 8-towers detector will be constructed, that shares...

The Nemo Phase II tower has been successfully taking data over one year. It has been installed on march the 23rd 2013 at Capo Passero, Italy, at 3500 m depth. The 8-floor tower hosts 32 10-inch PMT's. Results of background measurements as well as environmental parameters will be presented. During more than one year long measurements, the analyzed rates show stable and low baseline values,...
