Neutrino telescopes

Jurgen Brunner
Centre de Physique des Particules de Marseille (CPPM)

Currently several neutrino telescopes around the world are under construction or taking data. Their aim is to detect neutrinos of cosmic origin with energies above ~10 GeV, which would allow to identify cosmic hadron accelerators - the sources of cosmic rays. Another subject is the indirect dark matter search. The talk will introduce the concept of neutrino telescopes and then give a status of the most important projects. Results of various physics analyses will be presented and the potential of future projects will be discussed.
