Search for localized excess fluxes in Auger sky maps and prescription results

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Using the first surface detector data of the Pierre Auger Observatory, they present the results of a blind search for overdensities in the cosmic ray flux with respect to isotropic expectations. they consider two energy bands: 1 EeV {le} E {le} 5 EeV and E {ge} 5 EeV at two angular scales: 5{sup o} and 15{sup o}. They also report the results of searches for excesses in target directions already defined in a set of prescriptions presented at the ICRC in 2003. At the moment, both analyses give results that are compatible with isotropy.
