PeV Cosmic Rays: A Window on the Leptonic Era?


It is shown that a variety of characteristic features of the high-energy hadronic cosmic ray spectra, in particular the abrupt changes in the spectral index that occur around 3 PeV and 300 PeV, as well as the corresponding changes in elemental composition that are evident from kinks in the 〈Xmax〉 distribution, can be explained in great detail from… (More)
