Extensive air showers near the knee
We sumarize new and important results given at the 29th International Cosmic Ray Conference on experimental measurements and simulations of extensive air showers near the knee of the spectrum. Most results on the shape of the spectrum and the composition are consistent with Fermi acceleration in SNR. The newest versions of hadronic models in simulations are providing more similar predictions of air shower structure, but some notable problems remain.
