Cosmic rays with energies up to $10^{11}\,\mathrm{GeV}$ enter the atmosphere and produce showers of secondary particles. Inside these showers muons with high transverse momentum ($p_\mathrm{T} \gtrsim 2\,\mathrm{GeV}$) are produced from the decay of heavy hadrons, or from high $p_\mathrm{T}$ pions and kaons very early in the shower development. These isolated muons can have large transverse separations from the shower core up to several hundred meters, together with the muon bundle forming a…
