The general features of the neutrino flux from cosmic ray interactions in the Earth's atmosphere are well characterized. However, the absolute precision of calculations is still insufficient and the uncertainty from the modeling of hadronic interactions in the very forward region remains a major limitation. In this work, we benchmark the current generation hadronic models using high-precision atmospheric muon calculations from a few GeV to multiple TeV energies provided by the MCEq code. We…

Data-driven hadronic interaction model for atmospheric lepton flux calculations

The leading contribution to the uncertainties of atmospheric neutrino flux calculations arise from the cosmic-ray nucleon flux and the production cross sections of secondary particles in hadron-air

On the Accuracy of Underground Muon Intensity Calculations

Cosmic-ray muons detected by deep underground and underwater detectors have served as an information source on the high-energy cosmic-ray spectrum and hadronic interactions in air showers for almost

Hadronic interaction model sibyll 2.3c and inclusive lepton fluxes

Muons and neutrinos from cosmic ray interactions in the atmosphere originate from decays of mesons in air-showers. Sibyll-2.3c aims to give a precise description of hadronic interactions in the

The Muon Puzzle in cosmic-ray induced air showers and its connection to the Large Hadron Collider

High-energy cosmic rays are observed indirectly by detecting the extensive air showers initiated in Earth’s atmosphere. The interpretation of these observations relies on accurate models of air

Cosmic rays and particle physics

The study of high energy cosmic rays is a diversified field of observational and phenomenological physics addressing questions ranging from shock acceleration of charged particles in various
