Relevance of the hadronic interaction model in the interpretation of multiple muon data as detected with the MACRO experiment

Journal Article (Journal Article)

With the aim of discussing the effect of the possible sources of systematic uncertainties in simulation models, the analysis of multiple muon events from the MACRO experiment at Gran Sasso is reviewed. In particular, the predictions from different currently available hadronic interaction models are compared.
