Large and small scale structures in the angular distribution of cosmic rays of ultra-high energy detected by the Pierre Auger Observatory

Abstract

The Pierre Auger Observatory detects the atmospheric showers induced by ultra-energetic cosmic rays and measures their direction with a precision of the order of one degree. The angular distribution of the events observed in the first two years of data taking were searched for anisotropies. Results are presented and compared to previous claims of structures by other experiments.
