**Cosmic Rays and the Search for a Lorentz Invariance Violation**

by Wolfgang Bietenholz

**Publisher**: arXiv 2008**Number of pages**: 81

**Description**:

This is an introductory review about the on-going search for a signal of Lorentz Invariance Violation (LIV) in cosmic rays. The author first summarizes basic aspects of cosmic rays, focusing on rays of ultra high energy (UHECRs).
