The MVA for pure proton and mixed H&He samples selection in hybrid measurement of cosmic ray showers with LHAASO experiment
July 22, 2019
Large High Altitude Air Shower Observatory is a composite cosmic ray and gamma ray observatory consisting of three sub-detector arrays: the kilometer square array (KM2A), the water Cherenkov detector array (WCDA) and the wide field of view Cherenkov telescope array (WFCTA). LHAASO is under construction now and the 1/4 LHAASO array is planned to be completed in this year.
In this work, samples of the light components are selected by the simulation of hybrid observation with 1/4 LHAASO array. Boosted Decision Trees (BDTG) in Toolkit for Multivariate Analysis (TMVA) is used for the selection of primary particles in cosmic rays. The apertures of pure proton and mixed proton and helium samples are 900 m^2Sr and 1800 m^2Sr respectively with high purity. Moreover, a prospect of proton and mixed H&He spectra with energies from 100TeV to 4PeV is also presented.

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.
