Data set for the 2007-2012 ANTARES search for cosmic neutrino point sources

Introduction

A time integrated search for point sources of cosmic neutrinos was performed using the data collected from January 2007 to December 2012 by the ANTARES neutrino telescope. Attached below are the effective area, the acceptance, the cumulative angular resolution distribution and the point spread function for an E-2 source spectrum. Two types of searches were performed in this search: a full sky search and a search over 50 pre-defined neutrino source candidates. No statistically significant signal was found. A recovery of runs which were previously discarded has been performed after the 2007-2012 search. This increased the lifetime to a total of 1445 days (from 1338 days) and to a total number of 5921 events.
