We built a large (approximately 4,000 m**2) water Cherenkov-
type muon detector array under the existing Tibet air shower array at
4,300 m above sea level, to observe 10-1000 TeV gamma rays from
cosmic-ray accelerators in our Galaxy with wide field of view
at very low background level. A gamma-ray induced air shower has
significantly less muons compared with a cosmic-ray induced one.
Therefore, we can effectively discriminate between primary gamma rays
and cosmic-ray background events by means of counting number of
muons in an air shower event by the muon detector array. We make a
status report on the experiment.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
