Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays Propagation and Spectrum

The status of the observations of Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays will be reviewed, focusing on the the latest results of HiRes and Auger observatories. A comprehensive analytical computation scheme to

Disappointing model for ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays

Data of Pierre Auger Observatory show a proton-dominated chemical composition of ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays spectrum at (1 – 3) EeV and a steadily heavier composition with energy increasing. In

Results from Tunka-133 (5 years observation) and from the Tunka-HiSCORE prototype

Data obtained with two detectors located at the Tunka Cosmic Ray facility are presented. The Cherenkov light array for registration of extensive air showers (EAS) Tunka-133 collected data during 5

Hybrid Universality Model Development and Air Shower Reconstruction for the Pierre Auger Observatory

Cosmic rays have been studied for more than 100 years, providing valuable information on the measured spectrum and theories to particle propagation and interaction. Potential sources, which could

Neutron oscillations to parallel world: earlier end to the cosmic ray spectrum?

Present experimental data do not exclude fast oscillation of the neutron n to its degenerate twin from a hypothetical parallel sector, the so called mirror neutron n′. We show that this effect brings

Energy spectrum and mass composition of cosmic rays, by the data of the Tunka-133 array

The Tunka-133 Cherenkov light array for the detection of extensive air showers (EAS) acquires data over the five winters from 2009 to 2014. The direction of arrival, the shower core coordinates on

Northern Hemisphere UHECR data further supports CMBR photons with weak U(1) component

The Cosmic-Ray Composition between 2 PeV and 2 EeV Observed with the TALE Detector in Monocular Mode

We report on a measurement of the cosmic-ray composition by the Telescope Array Low-energy Extension (TALE) air fluorescence detector (FD). By making use of the Cherenkov light signal in addition to



First observation of the Greisen-Zatsepin-Kuzmin suppression.

High Resolution Fly's Eye's measurement of the flux of ultrahigh energy cosmic rays shows a sharp suppression at an energy of 6 x 10(19) eV, consistent with the expected cutoff energy.

Correlation of the highest-energy cosmic rays with nearby extragalactic objects.

Using data collected at the Pierre Auger Observatory during the past 3.7 years, we demonstrated a correlation between the arrival directions of cosmic rays with energy above 6 x 10(19) electron volts

Measurement of the flux of ultrahigh energy cosmic rays from monocular observations by the High Resolution Fly's Eye experiment.

The cosmic ray spectrum is measured using the two air-fluorescence detectors of the High Resolution Fly's Eye observatory operating in monocular mode to fit the spectrum to a model consisting of galactic and extragalactic sources.


Stereo data collected by the HiRes experiment over a six-year period are examined for large-scale anisotropy related to the inhomogeneous distribution of matter in the nearby universe. We consider

Indications of proton-dominated cosmic-ray composition above 1.6 EeV.

These measurements constrain models in which the galactic-to-extragalactic transition is the cause of the energy spectrum ankle at 4x10(18) eV, and are consistent with a predominantly protonic composition of cosmic rays when interpreted via the Q GSJET01 and QGSJET-II high-energy hadronic interaction models.

Measurement of the depth of maximum of extensive air showers above 10{18} eV.

The measurement of the depth of maximum, X{max}, of the longitudinal development of air showers induced by cosmic rays is described and the interpretation of these results in terms of the cosmic ray mass composition is briefly discussed.
