Description

Ground-based gamma ray detectors allows us to study the highest energy gamma rays whose flux is too small to measured by satellites. In this talk we will describe the physics of the extensive air showers and the techniques developed to separate the small number of gamma ray induced showers from the background of hadron induced showers.
