Analysis of cosmic ray events at the highest energy

Popis: 

Pierre Auger Observatory is the largest experimental apparatus in the field of astroparticle physics. Particles with energies larger than that of the LHC beams are detected by the array covering 3000 square kilometres in the Argentinian pampa. These cosmic particles originate in yet unknown sources in the Universe. The Aim of the Observatory is to measure the energy spectrum, direction of the incoming particles and answer the question about their chemical composition.
New analysis techniques at the Observatory will be developed by the student as well as new emerging detection techniques of cosmic rays will be investigated.
