Abstract
We present results of a search for PeV gamma-ray point sources with the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, presently the most sensitive facility for PeV gamma-ray sources in the southern hemisphere. This includes a general search over IceCube’s field of view, as well as tests for correlations with TeV sources detected by H.E.S.S. and neutrino events from IceCube’s high-energy starting event sample. As the attenuation length of PeV gamma rays limits observational distances to within the Galaxy, one of the goals of the analysis is to constrain the Galactic component of the astrophysical neutrino flux observed by IceCube.
