Description

The problems of cosmic ray transport in the Galaxy are discussed. The discussion covers the diffusion model of cosmic ray propagation in the Galaxy, the fluctuations of cosmic ray intensity due to random nature of sources, the collective effects of relativistic particles in the interstellar medium, the nature of “hardening” and “knee” in cosmic ray spectrum and the transition to extragalactic component.
