C8 – Propagation of Very High Energy Radiation in the Universe



Project Leaders

Günter Sigl (e-mail | group homepage)


Abstract

The aim of this project is the development of a general, public code for the propagation of very high energy cosmic rays of arbitrary chemical composition in a highly structured Universe, including secondary γ−rays and neutrinos. This tool will play a central role in comparing predictions of various scenarios for the origin of very high energy cosmic rays with the wealth of data on charged and neutral cosmic radiation anticipated within the next few years.
