Predictions of the hadronic interaction model EPOS 1.61 as implemented in the air shower simulation program CORSIKA are compared to observations with the KASCADE experiment. The investigations reveal that the predictions of EPOS are not compatible with KASCADE measurements. The discrepancies seen are most likely due to use of a set of inelastic hadronic cross sections that are too high. 
Test of hadronic interaction models with the KASCADE-Grande muon data
KASCADE-Grande is an air-shower observatory devoted for the detection of cosmic rays with energies in the interval of 10 14 − 10 18 eV, where the Grande array is responsible for the higher energy
KASCADE-Grande: Composition studies in the view of the post-LHC hadronic interaction models
The KASCADE-Grande experiment has significantly contributed to the current knowledge about the energy spectrum and composition of cosmic rays for energies between the knee and the ankle. Meanwhile,
Energy Spectrum and Mass Composition of Cosmic Rays and How to Publish Air-Shower Data
By a combined analysis of the KASCADE and KASCADE-Grande data the energy spectrum and mass composition of cosmic rays has been reconstructed, where a distinction of five primary mass groups has
Lateral distribution function of charged particles in EAS near the axis
High-precision measurements of the lateral distribution function (LDF) of charged particles near the axis of extensive air showers (EASes) were performed with the CARPET air shower array of the
Summary of the main results of the KASCADE and KASCADE-Grande experiments
The KASCADE and KASCADE-Grande experiments operated in KIT-Campus North, Karlsruhe (Germany) from 1993 to 2012. The two experiments studied primary cosmic rays in the energy range from 1014 eV to
Distribution of strange particles transverse momentum and rapidity in high energy proton–proton collisions at s = 0.9 TeV at LHC
In this paper, we have studied the spectra of strange particles in pp collision at [Formula: see text] = 0.9 TeV by using different simulation models, EPOS-1.99, SIBYLL-2.3c, QGSJETII-04 and


Test of high-energy interaction models using the hadronic core of EAS
Using the large hadron calorimeter of the KASCADE experiment, hadronic cores of extensive air showers have been studied. The hadron lateral and energy distributions have been investigated in order to
Test of interaction models up to 40 PeV by studying hadronic cores of EAS
The interpretation of extensive air shower measurements often requires a comparison with shower simulations in the atmosphere. These calculations rely on hadronic interaction models which have to
Nonlinear screening effects in high energy hadronic interactions
Nonlinear effects in hadronic interactions are treated by means of enhanced Pomeron diagrams, assuming that Pomeron-Pomeron coupling is dominated by soft partonic processes. It is shown that the
