Constraints on the galactic magnetic field with two-point cumulative autocorrelation function
MetadataShow full item record
The fact that ultra high energy cosmic rays are charged particles complicates identication of their sources due to deflections by the intervening cosmic magnetic fields. The information about the fields is encoded in the amount of deflection experienced by a charged particle. Unfortunately, the positions of sources are unknown as is the structure of the magnetic field. However, it is possible to deduce the most favorable galactic magnetic field by examining the parameter space of different models of the galactic magnetic field. The method presented in this work is valid under some plausible ...
