Abstract

We review recent results from AMANDA on the search for cosmic point sources of neutrinos, both in the diffuse and point-like channels. Assuming a E-2 spectral shape of the neutrino energy at the source, we derive limits on the diffuse νμ flux as well as in the all-flavour diffuse flux from the cascade search. We report limits on selected point sources as well as on GRB searches. We present results on primary cosmic CR composition in the range ∼100 TeV-PeV obtained with the help of the SPASE air shower array run in coincidence with AMANDA.
