Abstract

We present a study of the correlations in the arrival times of about 1016 single and multiple muons detected by the first two MACRO supermodules. The time correlations, from milliseconds to several hundrends of seconds, have been analyzed in terms of the random distribution, with which they are consistent. An analysis of the arrival times (up to 180 ns) of the muons from the same multimuon event is also given.
