Descripción:
The AIRES (AIR-shower Extended Simulations) system is a set of programs and subroutines to realistically simulate particle showersproduced after the incidence of high energy cosmic rays on the Earth┬┤s atmosphere, and to manage all the related output data. Version 19.04.00 includes a series of improvements with respect to previousreleases that is explained in detail in this manual and/or the web site aires.fisica.unlp.edu.ar from where the software can be downloaded. Among such improvements, it is worth mentioning: (i) High energy hadronic collisions can be simulated usign the the well-knownhadronic models EPOS, QGSJET, or SIBYLL, all of them in their LHC-tuned versions. (ii) Detailed simulation of unstable hadrondecays. (iii) The inclusion of a series of pre-compiled, ready to use, external special particle modules, that are characteristic of AIRES since its early versions. Such modules allow, for example, to easily simulate multi-primary particle showers. (iv) An exhaustive revision of the atmospheric profile models, including annual average profiles for geographcal locations corresponding to currently in operationultra-high energu shower observatories; and also the capability of accepting user-defined custom atmospheric profiles.DOI: 10.13140/RG.2.2.12566.40002
