The results of ATIC-2 baloon experiment (2002–2003) for energy spectra of protons, He, C, O, Ne, Mg, Si, Fe, some groups of nuclei, and all-particle spectrum in primary cosmic rays are presented in energy region 50 GeV–200 TeV. The conclusion is that the spectra of protons and helium nuclei are essentially different (the spectrum of protons is steeper) and the spectra of protons and heavy nuclei have no-power form.

Cosmic ray acceleration by supernova shocks
Abstract We analyse the results of recent measurements of nonthermal emission from individual supernova remnants (SNRs) and their correspondence to the nonlinear kinetic theory of cosmic ray (CR)
On the e+ e-excesses and the knee of the cosmic ray spectra
Supernova remnants (SNRs) have long been regarded as sources of the Galactic cosmic rays (CRs) up to petaelectronvolts, but convincing evidence is still lacking. In this work we explore the common
Impact of Fermi-LAT and AMS-02 results on cosmic-ray astrophysics
This article reviews a few topics relevant to Galactic cosmic-ray astrophysics, focusing on the recent AMS-02 data release and Fermi Large Area Telescope data on the diffuse Galactic gamma-ray
Galactic Cosmic Rays - Theory and Interpretation
The arguments surrounding the Galactic component of the cosmic rays, the energy budget, questions of composition, spectral features, anisotropy, sources etc, will be critically examined. We are
Impact of the spectral hardening of TeV cosmic rays on the prediction of the secondary positron flux
The rise in the cosmic-ray positron fraction measured by the PAMELA satellite is likely due to the presence of astrophysical sources of positrons, e.g. pulsars, on the kpc scale around the Earth.
Study of cosmic ray propagation using GALPROP
Significant spectral hardening at around 200 GV magnetic rigidity has been reported by AMS-02, ATIC-2, CALET, CREAM, DAMPE, and PAMELA. This has been observed in high-accuracy measurements of various
Composition of cosmic rays at ultra high energies
We present measurements of the cosmic ray (CR) composition above 10 15 eV, performed with the Yakutsk extensive air shower array. Almost forty four thousand events above 10 17 eV observed by
Bayesian analysis of the break in DAMPE lepton spectra
Recently, DAMPE has released its first results on the high-energy cosmic-ray electrons and positrons (CREs) from about 25 GeV to 4.6 TeV, which directly detect a break at ∼1  TeV. This result gives
Systematic study of the uncertainties in fitting the cosmic positron data by AMS-02
The operation of AMS-02 opens a new era for the study of cosmic ray physics with unprecedentedly precise data which are comparable with the laboratory measurements. The high precision data allow a
Closing in on the origin of cosmic rays using multimessenger information
In cosmic ray physics extensive progress has been made in recent years, both concerning theory and observation. The vast details in direct, indirect and secondary detections on the one hand provide
