Abstract content

By constantly monitoring at least one complete hemisphere of the sky, neutrino telescopes are well suited to detect neutrinos emitted by transient astrophysical sources. A follow-up program of the ANTARES neutrino alerts is in operation since 2009: it triggers a network of robotic optical telescopes immediately after the detection of a neutrino event and schedule several observations in the following weeks. The most interesting neutrino candidates are also followed by the Swift XRT and Integral telescopes, the M.W.A. radio telescope and the H.E.S.S. high-energy gamma-ray telescope. In parallel, real-time searches for ANTARES neutrino candidates coincident with very high-energy public neutrino alerts detected by IceCube and gravitational wave candidates observed by LIGO/Virgo are performed. By requiring coincident detection, this approach increases the sensitivity of the telescope and the significance of a potential discovery. The latest results of these analyses will be presented.
