Atmospheric neutrinos: Background and signal

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We discuss a brief history of atmospheric neutrinos, from background to proton decay searches to proving neutrino oscillations. We then discuss how high statistics atmospheric neutrino measurements in the IceCube Deep Core Array can provide useful information about neutrino oscillation parameters and other neutrino properties.
