    Abstract

    Using the Tibet III air shower array data (Nov. 1999∼Oct. 2004) a wide survey for point sources of TeV gamma-ray was performed. Significnt excesses from the well known steady source Crab Nebula and the flare type source Markarian 421 are observed, but no new source was found with sufficiently high significance. In addition to this search we obtained the low upper limits on the gamma-ray flux above 3 TeV and 10 TeV for the declination band 0 degree through 60 degrees.
