Abstract

Using the Super-Kamiokande neutrino observatory, a search was conducted for neutrinos produced in coincidence with gamma-ray bursts observed by the Burst and Transient Source Experiment detector. Super-Kamiokande data in the neutrino energy range of 7 MeV ∼ 100 TeV were analyzed. For gamma-ray bursts that occurred between 1996 April and 2000 May, no statistically significant signal in excess of the background levels was detected. Implied upper limits on associated gamma-ray burst neutrino production are presented.
