  1. IceCube analysis Gary C. Hill Science Advisory Committee Meeting Madison, WI March 30 2006

  2. IceCube analysis planning • Status of analysis planning • Analysis matrix • Institutional interests • Working group structure and leaders • Publications committee • Proposal for an analysis meeting – mid 2006

  3. Status of analysis planning • First survey of interests in December 2004 • First look at collaboration-wide physics interests completed • Matrix of physics interests vs institution – Berkeley, March 2005 • Updated over time…

  4. IceCube analysis interest matrix March 2005

  5. September 2005


  6. Institutional look at • science interests • Personnel • Senior • Postdocs • Undergraduate students • Graduate students and potential thesis topics

  7. UC Berkeley • atmospheric neutrinos (onset of charm) • • slow, supermassive particles (GUT monopoles, Q-balls, and nuclearites) • • diffuse sources of high-energy neutrinos • • point source searches with source stacking method • • neutrinos from gamma bursters, especially those that produce cascades • • future expansion to ~100 km3 using acoustic and radio arrays in coincidence • Buford Price • Kurt Woschnagg • Ryan Bay • David Hardtke • Rodin Porrata • Kirill Filimonov • Ignacio Taboada • Michelangelo D’Agostino – UHE diffuse ν • Andrés Morey - TeV ν from core collapse SN<20Mpc • Justin Vandenbroucke – acoustic UHE neutrinos

  9. After summing and depending on how you count… More than 40 existing graduate students intending to use data obtained with new IceCube instrumentation

  10. Organising analysis • First ideas – Berkeley March 2005 • Proposal to ICB – September 2005 • working group structure • Analysis meeting – mid 2006 • Working group structure approved Oct 05 • Working group leaders proposed, approved Mar 06

  11. Evolution of working groups • As IceCube grows, more physics analyses become possible • Varying rates that this happens e.g. • Point source, diffuse sensitivity grows steadily with increasing size • Low energy analyses in AMANDA strings may benefit greatly from having surrounding strings as a veto • Waveforms will be quickly powerful → Physics sensitivities will drive requirements (of course subject to personnel interest and availability) Presented at Berkeley, March 2005

  12. Long term… [working groups] • Analysis topics from matrix suggests many groups are possible • Different ways of arranging these • e.g. analysis based • point source group that does muon, electron and tau neutrinos • GRB group that does muon, electron and tau neutrinos • etc • or detection-channel based • muon group that does point sources, GRBs • electron group that does point sources, GRBs • etc • More analyses than detection channels… • Or some mixture of the two ways… Presented at Berkeley, March 2005

  13. Interacting working groups • muons • electrons • taus • point sources • diffuse sources • oscillations • GRBs • WIMPs • Supernovae • Monopoles • Atmos neutrinos • Atmos muons • EAS • Composition • Exotic stuff e.g. muon (electron, tau) group leader would work with leaders of various groups using muons (electrons, taus) in analysis do things consistently, etc • = working group Presented at Berkeley, March 2005
