Experiment: limit of flux

  1. Sep 21, 2014 #1
    I am reading some papers about astroparticle physics and I see something like Parker limit (monopole).

    So what is the purpose of setting up this limit ? It is be used to get the expected number of particles per unit area per unit time for later experiments ?

    Upper limits typically set a benchmark on how sensitive experiments will have to be in order to actually tell you something you do not already know.
