ADC_Keywords: Gamma rays Keywords: gamma rays: observations Description: Results of the search for gamma radiation above 15 TeV, using the AIROBICC air shower detector, from a set of 196 candidate point sources taken from different catalogs. For each object, the equatorial coordinates are provided, together with the number of signal events registered by the detector, the estimated background, the statistical significance of the excess (or defect) of events, the average energy threshold of the observation (in TeV), and the flux upper limit (at 90% confidence level) of gamma rays above this threshold.
