Multimessenger studies with the VERITAS Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescope

The VERITAS gamma-ray observatory has an active multimessenger program, currently focused on studying the connection between very-high-energy gamma rays and the astrophysical neutrino flux recently discovered by the IceCube telescope. As both gamma rays and neutrinos are produced in hadronic interactions, it is expected that a joint study of both messenger channels could reveal powerful cosmic-ray accelerators and probe their properties. We present an overview and recent results from the VERITAS multimessenger program and discuss prospects for combined studies with other multimessenger facilities, such as the Advanced LIGO gravitational wave observatory.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
