Title: Simulation Of Double-bang Event Induced By Neutrino In The Atmosphere
Author: Moura C.A.

Abstract: We use CORSIKA+Herwig simulation code to produce ultra-high energy neutrino interactions in the atmosphere. Our aimis to reproduce extensive air showers originated by extragalactic tau-neutrinos. For charged current tau-neutrino interactions in the atmosphere, beside the air shower originated from the neutrino interaction it is expected that a tau is created and may decay before reaching the ground. That phenomenon makes possible the generation of two extensive air showers, the so called Double- Bang event. We make a quantitative analysis of the main characteristics of Double-Bang events in the atmosphere and conclude that it may be possible to observe this kind of event in ultra-high energy cosmic ray observatories such as Pierre Auger.
