Talk Title: "On the flavor composition of the high-energy neutrinos in IceCube"

Abstract:

The IceCube experiment has recently released 3 years of data of the first ever detected high energy neutrinos, which are consistent with an extraterrestrial origin. In this talk I will discuss the compatibility of this observation with possible combinations of neutrino flavors and its implications.
