Ultra-high energy cosmic rays: Setting the stage
Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84112
The history of ultra-high energy cosmic ray physics is reviewed from the post-war era of arrays such as Volcano Ranch, Haverah Park and Akeno to the development of air-fluorescence and current hybrid arrays. The aim of this paper is to present the background information needed for a better understanding of the current issues in this field that are discussed in much greater depth in the rest of this conference.
