There is vast potential to test new physics with high-energy cosmic neutrinos, and the community has started doing it. As a way to help guide our collective efforts, we came up with a classification scheme of new-physics models:
The scheme classifies models according to the stages of the neutrino lifetime at which they may act — at production, during propagation, at detection — and what observables they may affect — energy spectrum, arrival directions, flavor composition, arrival times.
(The list of models above is representative, not exhaustive.)
