The Marked Decrease of Protons Flux in Cosmic Rays Beyond 3 Gev Kinetic Energy Analyzed Through a Vortex Model for the Proton.

Authors: Osvaldo F. Schilling

We analyze available data for cosmic rays protons below 10 GeV and find evidence for instability of these particles as their kinetic energy increases beyond about 3 GeV, as expected from our recent model [1] which proposes the existence of a parent state at about 3.7 GeV, from which protons would condense in the form of flux-confining vortices. According to the model, above 2.7 GeV kinetic energy such vortex states become unstable compared to the parent, and thus protons of higher energy become very rare in cosmic rays, as confirmed by the data.
