IceCube Search for Galactic Neutrino Sources based on HAWC Observations of the Galactic Plane
We present a search for neutrino emission from Galactic TeV gamma-ray sources detected by the HAWC Observatory. HAWC serves as an excellent instrument to complement IceCube with its energy range extending to very high energies where we expect neutrinos correlated with the gamma-rays observed by HAWC, assuming that the highest energy photons originate from the decay of pions. Using 8 years of IceCube data, we perform two different analyses to test for this possible correlation. The first is a stacked analysis of identified HAWC point sources and the second is a template method which accounts for the full morphology of HAWC sources, including extension.
