  author={S. Verpoest},
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole can provide unique tests of muon production models in extensive air showers by measuring both the low-energy (GeV) and high-energy (TeV) muon components. We present here a measurement of the TeV muon content in near-vertical air showers detected with IceTop in coincidence with IceCube. The primary cosmic-ray energy is estimated from the dominant electromagnetic component of the air shower observed at the surface. The high-energy muon content ofโ€ฆย

Sensitivity of IceCube cosmic ray measurements to the hadronic interaction models

The IceCube Neutrino Observatory measures cosmic-ray air showers with both its surface array IceTop and its 1.5-2.5 km deep in-ice array. IceTop measures the charge deposited by electromagneticโ€ฆ
