Neutrinos at the 36 th International Cosmic Ray Conference 2019

High-energy neutrinos astrophysics is still a very young field of research. Until recently, the only extra-solar neutrinos observed originated from SN1987A and had MeV energies, well below the energies expected to be emitted from violent cosmic phenomena like supernova remnants, active galactic nuclei and gamma-ray bursts. In 2013, after many decades of efforts, the first cosmic high-energy neutrinos were detected, finally opening this highly anticipated new window for the exploration of the non-thermal universe. In 2017, this was followed by the first plausible association of a high-energy neutrino with a source through a world-spanning multi-messenger campaign. Over 180 contributions at ICRC 2019 impressively demonstrated the dynamics of the field and the importance of multi-messenger efforts. Here, I attempt to provide an overview over the field, presenting a selection from the contributions to ICRC based on the corresponding rapporteur talk at the conference in Madison.

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.
