The landscape of high- and ultra-high-energy astrophysics has changed in the last decade, largely due to the inflow of data collected by large-scale cosmic-ray, gamma-ray, and neutrino observatories. At the dawn of the multimessenger era, the interpretation of these observations within a consistent framework is important to elucidate the open questions in this field. CRPropa 3.2 is a Monte Carlo code for simulating the propagation of high-energy particles in the Universe. This version…

Impact of the finite life-time of UHECR sources

. The observational data on ultrahigh energy cosmic rays (UHECR), in particular their mass composition, show strong indications for extremely hard spectra of individual mass groups of CR nuclei at

The Diffuse Gamma-Ray Flux from Clusters of Galaxies

The origin of the diffuse gamma-ray background (DGRB), the one that remains after subtracting all individual sources from observed gamma-ray sky, is unknown. The DGRB possibly encompasses

Caustic-like Structures in UHECR Flux after Propagation in Turbulent Intergalactic Magnetic Fields

UHECR propagation in a turbulent intergalactic magnetic field in the small-angle scattering regime is well understood for propagation distances much larger than the field coherence scale. The diffusion

We present the simulation framework CRPropa version 3 designed for efficient development of astrophysical predictions for ultra-high energy particles. Users can assemble modules of the most relevant

CRPropa 3.1—a low energy extension based on stochastic differential equations

The propagation of charged cosmic rays through the Galactic environment influences all aspects of the observation at Earth. Energy spectrum, composition and arrival directions are changed due to

On the Propagation of Extragalactic High Energy Cosmic and γ-Rays

The observation of air showers from elementary particles with energies exceeding 10 eV poses a puzzle to the physics and astrophysics of cosmic rays which is still unresolved. Explaining the origin

Secondary neutrino and gamma-ray fluxes from SimProp and CRPropa

The interactions of ultra-high energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) with background photons in extragalactic space generate high-energy neutrinos and photons. Simulating UHECR propagation requires assumptions

High-Energy Neutrino Production in Clusters of Galaxies

Clusters of galaxies can potentially produce cosmic rays (CRs) up to very high energies via large-scale shocks and turbulent acceleration. Due to their unique magnetic-field configuration, CRs with
