Abstract
We use an autocorrelation analysis to look for inhomogeneities in the arrival directions of the high energy muon neutrino candidates detected by the ANTARES neutrino telescope. This approach is complementary to a point source likelihood-based search, which is mainly sensitive to one bright point like source and not to collective effects. We present the results of a search based on this two-point correlation method, providing constraints on models of a population of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) too faint to be detected by the likelihood-based method.
