Extensive air showers created by high-energy particles interacting with the Earth atmosphere can be detected using imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes (IACTs). The IACT images can be analyzed to distinguish between the events caused by gamma rays and by hadrons and to infer the parameters of the event such as the energy of the primary particle. We use convolutional neural networks (CNNs) to analyze Monte Carlo-simulated images from the telescopes of the TAIGA experiment. The analysis includes selection of the images corresponding to the showers caused by gamma rays and estimating the energy of the gamma rays. We compare performance of the CNNs using images from a single telescope and the CNNs using images from two telescopes as inputs.

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.
