The longitudinal development of the electron component of the air shower is investigated in connection with high energy nuclear interaction. The method of calculations and analyses developed for the study of the nuclear active component in a previous paper are used again.
The transition curves of the electrons are considered. First, the transition curves are represented by four numerical constants. Next, model dependent features of the transition curves are discussed by investigating systematically the relationship between the four constants and parameters in the model of high energy nuclear interaction.
From the results of the present work, a model of the longitudinal development of the electron component is presented, and is compared with other models and other simulations of air showers.
