Abstract

The Antarctic Muon And Neutrino Detector Array (AMANDA) is a high-energy neutrino telescope based at the geographic South Pole. It is a lattice of photo-multiplier tubes buried deep in the polar ice, which is used as interaction and detection medium. The primary goal of this detector is the observation of astronomical sources of high-energy neutrinos. This paper shows the latest results of the search for a diffuse flux of extraterrestrial νμs with energies between 1011 eV and 10 18 eV, νμs emitted from point sources and νμs from dark matter annihilation in the Earth and the Sun.
