Extragalactic cosmic rays

I review the status of ultrahigh-energy cosmic ray (UHECR) physics. After introducing the main experimental results and summarizing possible intepretations, I discuss observational and theoretical constraints on the sources of UHECRs. I comment also briefly on the role of magnetic fields. Combining these constraints, I argue that luminuous and numerous AGN types as FR-I and Seyfert galaxies, or alternatively hypernovae, are the most promising UHECR sources. Finally, I sketch few of the models presented at the conference before concluding.

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.
