On the scattering of atmospheric muons in the rock above Soudan 2

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

I have investigated the effect of scattering in the rock overburden on the position and direction of atmospheric muons as observed at the Soudan 2 detector relative to the surface. The dominant contributions to the fluctuations in those observables arise from multiple Coulomb scattering and delta ray production. The contribution of the other energy loss mechanisms, bremsstrahlung, pair production and nuclear interactions, is small, with slowly increasing importance at very large deviations from the means of the distributions.
