The propagation of ultra high energy cosmic rays

Abstract:

This thesis presents theoretical work on the propagation of ultra high energy cosmic rays, from their source to Earth. The different energy loss processes, resulting from cosmic ray interactions with the radiation fields, are addressed. The subsequent uncertainties in the energy loss rates and the effect produced on the arriving cosmic ray spectrum are highlighted.

The question of the composition of ultra high energy cosmic rays remains unresolved, with the range of possibilities le...
