Professor Roger Clay: Pierre Auger Collaboration Recent Anisotropy Studies with the Pierre Auger Observatory

The Pierre Auger Observatory is the world's largest cosmic ray observatory. It has been in full operation for almost a
decade, giving it the largest ever exposure at ultra-high energies. The Auger dataset at those highest energies is large enough to enable astrophysically significant studies to be made of both broad-scale and hot-spot anisotropies in the southern sky. Through the selection of particular classes of events, searches can also be made for point sources associated with uncharged messengers. Recent Auger anisotropy data will be presented together with discussion of their possible astrophysical interpretation.
