    Abstract

    The Tibet III air shower array has a wide field of view greater than one steradian and a high duty cycle. Using the Tibet III (Nov. 1999 - Oct. 2004) data, we search for TeV transient gamma-ray point sources on the time scale of 120 days, 30 days, 10 days and 3 days. No new source was found at sufficiently high significance on any time scale in the field of view during the live time. The 90% confidence level upper limits on the integral flux above 3 TeV assuming an energy spectrum of E-1.6 and of E-1.0 are obtained.
