GCN Circular 25832
The IceCube Collaboration (http://icecube.wisc.edu/) reports: IceCube has performed a search for additional track-like muon neutrino events arriving from the direction of IceCube-190922A (https://gcn.gsfc.nasa.gov/gcn3/25802.gcn3) in a time range of 2 days centered on the alert event time (2019-09-21 09:42:45.62 UTC to 2019-09-23 09:42:45.62 UTC) during which IceCube was collecting good quality data. Excluding the event that prompted the alert, zero additional track-like events are found in spatial coincidence with the 90% containment region of IceCube-190922A. We find that these data are well described by atmospheric background expectations, with a p-value of 1.0. Accordingly, these data would represent a time-integrated muon-neutrino flux upper limit at the alert position assuming an E^-2 spectrum (E^2 dN/dE) at the 90% CL of 3.3 x 10^-4 TeV cm^-2 for this observation period. 90% of events IceCube would detect from a source at this declination with an E^-2 spectrum are approximately between 100 TeV and 30 PeV. A subsequent search was performed to include the previous month of data (2019-08-22 09:42:45.62 UTC to 2019-09-23 09:42:45.62 UTC). In this case, we report a p-value of 1.0, consistent with no significant excess of track-like events, and a corresponding time-integrated muon-neutrino flux upper limit assuming an E^-2 spectrum (E^2 dN/dE) of 6.6 x 10^-4 TeV cm^-2 at the 90% CL. The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is a cubic-kilometer neutrino detector operating at the geographic South Pole, Antarctica.
