Energy-position correlation anisotropy of ultra-high energy cosmic rays with Telescope Array Data
J. P. Lundquist, objavljeni povzetek znanstvenega prispevka na konferenci

Opis: Indication of an energy dependent intermediate-scale anisotropy has been found in the arrival directions of ultra-high energy cosmic rays with energies above 20 EeV in the northern hemisphere, using 7 years of TA surface detector data. The previously reported “hotspot“ excess for E>57 EeV is found to correspond to a deficit, or “coldspot“, of events for energies 2057 EeV has a Li-Ma statistical significance of 4.62σ, and the deficit for energies 20Najdeno v: ključnih besedah

The Nature and Origin of Ultra-high Energy Cosmic Ray Particles
J. P. Lundquist, P.L. Biermann, 2016, objavljeni znanstveni prispevek na konferenci (vabljeno predavanje)

Opis: We outline two concepts to explain Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays (UHECRs), one based on radio galaxies and their relativistic jets and terminal hot spots, and one based on relativistic Super-Novae (SNe) or Gamma Ray Bursts (GRBs) in starburst galaxies, one matching the arrival direction data in the South (the radio galaxy Cen A) and one in the North (the starburst galaxy M82). The most likely identification of the origin of observed Gravitational Wave (GW) events is stellar binary black hole (BH) mergers in starburst galaxies such as M82 with the highest rate of star formation, so the highest far-infrared (FIR) luminosity, at the edge of the universe visible in 10 - 300 Hz GWs; at low heavy element abundance Zch the formation of stellar BHs extends to a larger mass range. A radio galaxy such as Cen A sequence of events involves first the merger of two Super-Massive Black Holes (SMBHs), with the associated ejection of low frequency GWs, then the formation of a new relativistic jet aiming into a new direction: ubiquitous neutrino emission follows accompanied by compact TeV photon emission, detectable more easily if the direction is towards Earth. The ejection of UHECRs is last. Both these sites are the perfect high energy physics laboratory: We have observed particles up to ZeV, neutrinos up to PeV, photons up to TeV, 30 - 300 Hz GW events, and hope to detect soon of order µHz to mHz GW events. Energy turnover in single low frequency GW events may be of order ∼1063 erg. How can we further test these concepts? First of all by associating individual UHECR events, or directional groups of events, with chemical composition in both the Telescope Array (TA) Coll. and the Auger Coll. data. Second by identifying more TeV to PeV neutrinos with recent SMBH mergers. Third by detecting the order < mHz GW events of SMBH binaries, and identifying the galaxies host to the stellar BH mergers and their GW events in the range up to 300 Hz. Fourth by finally detecting the formation of the first generation of SMBHs and their mergers, surely a spectacular discovery.

Search for correlations between the arrival directions of IceCube neutrino events and ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays detected by the Pierre Auger Observatory and the Telescope Array
J. P. Lundquist, M. G. Aartsen, 2016, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: This paper presents the results of different searches for correlations between very high-energy neutrino candidates detected by IceCube and the highest-energy cosmic rays measured by the Pierre Auger Observatory and the Telescope Array. We first consider samples of cascade neutrino events and of high-energy neutrino-induced muon tracks, which provided evidence for a neutrino flux of astrophysical origin, and study their cross-correlation with the ultrahigh-energy cosmic ray (UHECR) samples as a function of angular separation. We also study their possible directional correlations using a likelihood method stacking the neutrino arrival directions and adopting different assumptions on the size of the UHECR magnetic deflections. Finally, we perform another likelihood analysis stacking the UHECR directions and using a sample of through-going muon tracks optimized for neutrino point-source searches with sub-degree angular resolution. No indications of correlations at discovery level are obtained for any of the searches performed. The smallest of the p-values comes from the search for correlation between UHECRs with IceCube high-energy cascades, a result that should continue to be monitored.
