Distribution of particles in the range 10−2–1012 eV, initiated in dense media by high-energy adrons


A method is developed for calculating the distribution functions of adrons, muons, and γ-quanta from an internuclear cascade in dense media. The HAMLET program is originated for solving in plane and cylindrical geometry the problem of transfer in the energy range 10−2 to 1012 eV. For the first time, the K-meson component of the nucleon- meson cascade is considered. The results of the calculation are in good agreement with the experimental data.
