2014ApJ...794..126F Is the Ultra-high Energy Cosmic-Ray Excess Observed by the Telescope Array Correlated with IceCube Neutrinos? Fang, Ke; Fujii, Toshihiro; Linden, Tim; Olinto, Angela V. Abstract. The Telescope Array (TA) has observed a statistically significant excess in cosmic rays with energies above 57 EeV in a region of approximately 1150 deg^2^ centered on coordinates R.A. = 146.7, decl. = 43.2. We note that the location of this excess correlates with 2 of the 28 extraterrestrial neutrinos recently observed by IceCube. The overlap between the two IceCube neutrinos and the TA excess is statistically significant at the 2sigma level. Furthermore, the spectrum and intensity of the IceCube neutrinos is consistent with a single source which would also produce the TA excess. Finally, we discuss possible source classes with the correct characteristics to explain the cosmic-ray and neutrino fluxes with a single source. Key words: astroparticle physics, cosmic rays, gamma rays: galaxies, neutrinos
