Title: Tau Neutrinos and Upward-Going Air Showers:Stochastic Vs. Continuous Energy Loss

Abstract

We discuss the detection of cosmic neutrinos by using the Earth as a tau neutrino converter for upward-going extensive air showers from tau decays and quantify the experimental detection capability based on our calculation, including using the Probe of Extreme Multi-Messenger Astrophysics (POEMMA) for optical air Cherenkov detection. The sensitivity of POEMMA is also be discussed. We consider strategies and differences involved in modeling the Earth (shells or continuously varying density) and tau energy loss as it propagates, as stochastic compared to continuous.
