Galactic Cosmic Rays Anomalies
April 24, 2019
Current measurements of galactic cosmic rays have reached an impressive precision
for many species, and extend on wide energy ranges.
Some species such as the high energy positron spectrum, the light primary and secondary nuclei and, possibly, the high energy part of the antiproton spectrum, are not straightforwardly explained by current models. The latter, indeed, are
often calibrated on pre-existing cosmic data themselves.
We outline how these anomalies, or effects in the data not straightforwardly explained by state-of-the-art theories, can open new doors in our understanding of the Galaxy and its particle components.

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.
