Physics and Astrophysics of Cosmic Rays in Space

Physics and Astrophysics of Cosmic Rays in Space
University of Milano-Bicocca (UNIMIB) – Milan, Italy
September 12-20, 2016.

The school is devoted to the discussion of Cosmic Ray physics in the energy range from a fraction of GeV to more than one TeV.

The new experimental results will be compared with the models of production and propagation inside the galaxy and the solar system, including  the near-earth space.

After AMS-02 on board of the International Space Station, Fermi and Pamela satellites, Cosmic Rays observations become precise at a level which requires a refinement, or a step forward,   of  the existing models. These results will be discussed in view of the  impact on fundamental physics, astrophysics and cosmology.
