Hadronic Interaction Models and the Interpretation of Astroparticle Data
Date: Thursday, February 13th
Time: 2:30 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Dimitra Atri, Blue Marble Space Institute of Science
Abstract: The interpretation of astroparticle data from both ground and space-based instruments depends strongly on the hadronic interaction models underpinning the emission mechanism. I will demonstrate the model dependence using recent observations from the Ooty air shower array and Fermi LAT. I will also discuss how the choice of hadronic interaction models could affect the interpretation of neutrino and gamma ray measurements with IceCube and CTA.
