Summary

Acting on the suggestion implicit in some reeent experimental results, we have used Heisenberg’s theory to calculate the correlation between oscillations of the Earth’s atmosphere and the intensity of theN component of cosmic rays. The theoretical predictions are in qualitative but not in quantitative agreement with the experimental results. However we may note that these latter are, at present, statistically poor.

Riassunto

Sulla traccia di alcuni recenti risultati sperimentali abbiamo calcolato con la teoria di Heisenberg la correlazione fra le oscillazioni dell’atmosfera terrestre e l’intensità della componentsN dei raggi cosmici. Le previsioni teoriche sono in accordo soltanto qualitativo con i risultati dell’esperienza: è da notare però che questi ultimi sono ancora statisticamente poveri.
