We report on papers presented in the high energy sessions of the conference that do not deal with the theory and observations of muons and neutrinos. We concentrate on the development and testing of hadronic interaction models, their extension to ultrahigh energy and their importance for the analysis and interpretation of air shower data. We also summarize data on the cosmic ray spectrum and composition obtained with air showers. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    The possibility of discovering QCD instantons in deep-inelastic scattering by analyzing correlations in final states is studied. The correlation moments F[sub q] and H[sub q] for instanton processes are calculated at the patton and at the hadron level. Hadronization is taken into account by the...

    The results that the FLUKA, GHEISHA, and QGSM codes produce for the features of hadron interactions are compared with one another and with experimental data. Distinctions between hadronic cascades computed in lead and iron on the basis of the different codes are analyzed. The possibility of...
