Using the most recent PDFs and the cosmic ray spectrum, we evaluate the charm/bottom induced prompt atmospheric muon neutrino fluxes including nuclear corrections. We investigate their impact in perturbative QCD and estimate the comprehensive uncertainties from other various factors. The prompt atmospheric tau neutrino fluxes are also presented.
