Abstract

Three-dimensional development of cascade shower in lead initiated by high energy proton-Pb and pion-Pb interactions are calculated by full Monte-Carlo simulation assuming simple geometrical model for hadron-nucleus interactions. It is shown that fluctuations in shower development is very large but the extraordinary long penetrating showers observed in the Pamir thick lead chamber experiment can not be explained by simple fluctuations of shower development initiated by ordinary hadron-Pb interactions.
