Paper Abstract

The origin of the Gamma Ray Bursts and the Cosmic Rays (especially with energies exceeding 1018 eV) remain the greatest puzzles of Nature. This paper briefly describes the MazePi project searching for coincidences of high energy cosmic rays with GRB optical emission. It is based on the Roland Maze Project, which applies idea of using the ground level Extensive Air Shower (EAS) detector array to look for high energy particles associated with gamma ray burst (GRB), and the "Pi of the Sky" project, which is fully autonomous system for detection and analysis of optical flashes connected with GRB.
