ALPACA (Andes Large area PArticle detector for Cosmic-ray physics and Astronomy) experiment is a collaboration project between Bolivia and Japan. It is going to be located at the Mt.Chacaltaya plateau (16°23'S,68°08'W) in Bolivia, at high altitude of 4,740 m (572.4 g/cm^2). As the prototype experiment of ALPACA, ALPAQUITA experiment is going to start this year. We evaluate the performance of ALPAQUITA with an MC simulation and give as results the detection efficiency of the ALPAQUITA AS array and the difference of muon distribution of gamma-ray induced air showers and cosmic-ray induced ones.

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.
