On the possibility of testing the models of the knee in PCR spectrum

  • V. P. PavlyuchenkoEmail author


A new approach to the analysis of available experimental data for determining the nature of the knee in the spectrum of particles of primary cosmic rays (PCR) is considered. The proposed highly sensitive difference method allows scanning the entire celestial sphere in the search for PCR anomalies and possible sources.
