Abstract content

Following the first observation of PeV neutrino events and successful measurements of high energy extraterrestrial neutrino flux in the energy region between a few tens of TeV and PeV significantly above the atmospheric neutrino background flux by IceCube, the field of neutrino astrophysics is becoming more and more active. In this contribution, I summarize the recent experimental results from cosmic neutrino observatories, such as IceCube and ANTARES. Theoretical interpretations and their challenges are briefly discussed followed by future prospects of the neutrino astronomy.
