Abstract

Tau neutrino detection in IceCube would be strong evidence for the presence of cosmologically-produced neutrinos. In addition to the well-known "double bang" signature, we describe here five additional channels that we believe will not only extend the energy range over which IceCube can be sensitive to tau neutrinos, but also provide useful control over systematic uncertainties via self-consistency checks amongst all detection channels.
