IceCube-59: Search for point sources using muon events


A search for neutrino point sources using 3 years of IceCube data, including the 59-string configuration (May 2009 – May 2010), was performed. An all-sky scan was performed to look for spatial clustering of a fitting for the flux level and the spectral index. No significant hotspots were found. For more information on the likelihood analysis and the event selection, see the paper reference below.
