Cosmic-Ray Composition analysis at IceCube using Graph Neural Networks
November 15, 2023
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is a multi-component detector embedded deep within the South-Pole Ice. This proceeding will discuss an analysis from an integrated operation of IceCube and its surface array, IceTop, to estimate cosmic-ray composition. The work will describe a novel graph neural network based approach for estimating the mass of primary cosmic rays, that takes advantage of signal-footprint information and reconstructed cosmic-ray air shower parameters. In addition, the work will also introduce new composition-sensitive parameters for improving the estimation of cosmic-ray composition, with the potential of improving our understanding of the high-energy muon content in cosmic-ray air showers.

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.
