Physics HEPAP/CPGA Seminar

The Astrophysical Multimessenger Observatory Network (AMON) is currently providing multimessenger alerts to the astrophysical community with the purpose to enable the discovering of multimessenger sources, to exploit these sources for purposes of astrophysics, fundamental physics, and cosmology, and to explore archival datasets for evidence of multimessenger source populations. In this case, I'll present the Gamma + Neutrino AMON program, which mostly focus on finding the sources of high-energy neutrinos.  Evidence for the detection of a gamma-ray and neutrino source has been presented for the source TXS 0506+056; however, more detections are needed. 

I'll talk describe the Gamma + Neutrino AMON program in a general manner and also talk about one of the specific analysis streams currently running. This stream is based on sub-threshold data from the HAWC and IceCube observatories.  I'll present preliminary results on this stream.
