We report the detection of a 51-joule (320 +/- 90 EeV) cosmic ray by the Fly's Eye air shower detector in Utah. This is substantially greater than the energy of any previously reported cosmic ray. A
Coronal gamma-ray bursts as the sources of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays?
I consider the possibility that Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays are accelerated in Gamma Ray Bursts located in the Galactic corona, thus circumventing the problem raised by Greisen--Zatsepin--Kuz'min

Excess negative charge of an electron-photon shower and its coherent radio emission
We investigate the excess of electrons in an electron-photon shower. This excess is caused by annihilation of the positrons in flight and by the Compton and $\delta$-electrons in the cascade. It is
