Speaker: Yang Bai (U. Wisconsin)
Subject: Towards Understanding IceCube High Energy Neutrinos

The IceCube collaboration has recently observed high energy neutrinos in the 30 TeV to 2 PeV range. The flux is much above the atmospheric neutrino background and requires new sources to explain its origin. In this talk, I will provide a list of potential explanations with a focus on decaying dark matter and point-like sources.
