Formation and propagation of cosmic-ray ensembles
July 02, 2021
High-energy particles undergo different interactions while propagating through the Universe. As a result, they initiate particle cascades of various types and sizes, referred to as cosmic-ray ensembles (CRE). Since recently, Cosmic-Ray Extremely Distributed Observatory (CREDO) Collaboration aims at pursuing a mission dedicated to CRE, since this observation channel, i.e. correlated observation of cosmic rays on the global scale, complements the current approach to cosmic-ray research, which focuses on air showers initiated by individual cosmic rays. Recent results of Monte Carlo simulations showing that there might be a chance of observing a CRE originating from synchrotron radiation occurring even as far away from the Earth as at distances exceeding the Galaxy size, are presented. The issues and perspectives of the CRE-oriented research are discussed as well.

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.
