Invitation to a point in dispute

Invitation to a point in dispute

  • The Fundamental parameters in (Ultra-)High Energy Astrophysics are:

    1.Reliable Estimation of the Energies of the Neutrino Events

    2. Reliable Estimation of the Incident Direction of the Neutrino Events

    To invite the participants to a point dispute, let us start from CONCLUSION, not INTRODUCTION.


Conclusion 1

Conclusion 1

1. Muon Neutrino Events: Inevitably Partially Contained Events

One could not even estimate the energies of the muons from muon neutrino events (! ?)

2. Electron Neutrino Events: Usually, Fully Contained Events. Inevitably, Partially Contained Events in Ultra-High Energies (LPM shower)


Conclusion 2

Conclusion 2

  • COMPUTER NUMERICAL EXPERIMENTS

  • should be carried out simultaneously together with the REAL XPERIMENTS CONCERNED, not in the usual sense of Monte Carlo Simulation.


Range fluctuation of ultra high energy muons

Range Fluctuation of (Ultra)-High Energy Muons

  • The Muon Range with Definite Energy is governed by the stochastic characters of the direct electron pair production, remsstrahlung and nuclear interaction which are also the origins of the accompanied electron showers.

The image of ultra high energy muon

The Image of (Ultra-)High Energy Muon

  • Muons from Muon Neutrino Events should be recognized as an aggregate of electron cascade showers with different starting points and different primary energies.

  • “Electron clouds” are twined around such the muon.

  • Namely, the muon could not be imaged as “Single or Naked Muon “


Is the muon itself the dominant source for the cherenkov light

Is the Muon Itself the Dominant Source for the Cherenkov Light ?

  • For the question, it enough to examine the track lengths concerned, because the Cherenkov light production is proportional to the corresponding track length.

  • Ratio= track lengths of electrons from the accompanied showers/(track lengths of electrons from the accompanied showers + track length of the muon )

Cherenkov light from the mother muon and her daughters electron shower

Cherenkov Light from the Mother Muon and Her Daughters Electron Shower

  • Accompanied electron showers are produced from the direct electron pair production, beremsstrahlung and nuclear interaction due to muon.

  • These electron showers are exactly simulated in one-dimensional treatment .

  • The electron segments in the simulated electron showers produced corresponding Cherenkov light

The lpm showers as partially contained events

The LPM showersas Partially Contained Events

  • The Characteristics of the LPM showers:

  • [1] The Average behavior of the LPM showers is quite different from that of BH (Bethe-Heitler) Showers ( Konishi,Misaki and Fujimaki, Nuovo Cimento,(1978))

  • [2] TheIndividual Behavior of the LPM shower is quite different from that of the Averaged LPM shower ( Konishi,Adachi,Takahashi and Misaki, J.Phys.G, (1991))

Final conclusion

Final Conclusion

  • At the early stage of the REAL XPERIMENTS, COMPUTER NUMRERICAL XPERIMENT should be being carried out with parallel them, collaborating with them closely.

  • In the presence of the Computer numerical experiment, one need not the transformation from the Cherenkov light to the Muon Energy
