"High energy neutrino telescopes in the multimessenger astronomy era"

Rodrigo Gracia-Ruiz

(Laboratorio IPHC, Estrasburgo)

The domain of astroparticle physics is related to the study of the most violent astrophysical phenomena in the Universe, such as the accretion of matter by Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) or Gamma Ray Bursts (GRB), which emit different cosmic messengers such as neutrinos, gravitational waves, electromagnetic radiation and charged particles. A proper understanding of these objects involves then a multi-messenger approach, in which neutrinos play a fundamental role. Thanks to their physical properties, neutrinos allow us to explore the physical phenomena produced in the densest astrophysical environments and to observe the Universe at large distances. In this talk we will give a review of high energy neutrino astrophysics, which includes a description of neutrino telescopes and the main difficulties associated to the search for cosmic neutrinos. We will show the main results in the field and report on the future of high energy neutrino astronomy.
