    Abstract:
    A subset of neutrino-induced upward through-going muons in the Super-Kamiokande detector consists of high-energy muons which lose energy through radiative processes such as bremsstrahlung, e+ e- pair production and photonuclear interactions. These "upward showering muons" comprise an event sample whose mean parent neutrino energy is approximately 1 TeV. We show that the zenith angle distribution of upward showering muons is consistent with negligible distortion due to neutrino oscillations, as expected of such a high-energy neutrino sample. We present astronomical searches using these high-energy events, such as those from WIMP annihilations in the Sun, Earth and Galactic Center, some suspected point sources, as well as searches for diffuse flux from the interstellar medium. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.
