**Ultrahigh Energy Cosmic Rays: Facts, Myths, and Legends**

by Luis Alfredo Anchordoqui

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**Number of pages**: 92

**Description**:

This is a written version of a series of lectures aimed at graduate students in astrophysics/particle theory/particle experiment. In the first part, we explain the important progress made in recent years towards understanding the experimental data on cosmic rays with energies higher than 10e8 GeV.
