Description

I'll discuss the differences between contemporary Monte Carlo generators of high energy hadronic interactions and their impact on the interpretation of experimental data on ultra-high energy cosmic rays (UHECRs). In particular, key directions for model improvements will be outlined. The prospect for a coherent interpretation of the data in terms of the primary composition will be investigated.
