Measurement of the Lateral Distribution Function of UHECR Air Showers with the Pierre Auger Observatory

Abstract

The Pierre Auger Observatory [1] is being used to study cosmic rays with energies larger than 10 eV with unprecedented precision and statistics. An essential quantity that must be deduced from data is the lateral distribution function (LDF) that describes the decreasing of the signals in the watertanks as a function of distance. Knowledge of the LDF is… (More)
