Abstract:

The alignment of very high energy secondary cosmic rays, implying coplanar emissions, was observed at both stratospheric and mountain altitudes by several x-ray emulsion chamber experiments. This paper investigates the physical relevance of the experimental observations through detailed Monte Carlo calculations carried out with the CORSIKA program combining different models of high energy hadronic interaction. The physical factors likely to induce or to influence this phenomenon are discussed.
