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 v(mu)s with energies between 10(11) eV and 10(18) eV, v(mu)s emitted from point sources and v(mu)s from dark matter annihilation in the Earth and the Sun.
