Abstract :
A preliminary flux estimate of various cosmic-ray constituents based on the atmospheric Cerenkov light flux of extensive air showers using fractal and wavelet analysis approach is proposed. Using a Monte-Carlo simulated database of Cerenkov images recorded by the TACTIC telescope, we show that one of the wavelet parameters (wavelet dimension B 6 ) provides ⩾90% segregation of the simulated events in terms of the primary mass. We use these results to get a preliminary estimate of primary flux for various cosmic-ray primaries above 5 TeV energy. The simulation based flux estimates of the primary mass as recorded by the TACTIC telescope are in good agreement with the experimentally determined values.
