Paper Abstract

High energy neutrino sources of astronomical origin are sought with data from the Super-Kamiokande-I detector. In this search, upward going muons with a minimum track length of 7m are used. During the first 5 years of operation, we have accumulated 2331 such events, of which 452 stopped in the detector and the rest passed through. This search, using the entire sample of upward going muon data from SK-I detector, revealed no statistically significant neutrino sources, setting new flux limits on astronomical neutrino sources.
