Abstract

The current status of the LVD (large volume detector) experiment aimed at search for neutrinos from the gravitational collapse of stellar cores is described. Within the period of observations from June 1992 to February 2017, no gravitational collapse was found in the Milky Way Galaxy and Magellanic Clouds, including hidden ones (not ejecting the envelope). The LVD collects data for 99% of the live time. A limit on the frequency of supernova bursts within a distance of 25 kpc was set at a level of 0.1 event/yr. The most recent results obtained by studying the muon component of cosmic rays are presented.
