ANTARES - Baikal GVD Alerts Analysis

Not scheduled


Mr Sergio Alves (Instituto de Física Corpuscular (UV-CSIC))


ANTARES and Baikal-GVD are both Cherenkov neutrino telescopes located in
the Northern Hemisphere. As a consequence, their fields of view overlap allowing
for a combined study of the sky. Since December of 2018, Baikal followed
up a total of 25 ANTARES alerts, and while no prompt coincidence was found,
a cascade mode search showed some events falling within an angular distance of
less than 5° around three of these alerts. The 4.5° angular resolution of Baikal-
GVD allows for the possibility of these events to be correlated, which makes them
of extreme interest. In this poster we present new results on the study of these
alerts after the addition of the latest ANTARES shower dataset to the analysis,
and the optimization of the search method with a novel Machine Learning Algorithm
for background rejection.
