Description

Using different Monte Carlo codes such as Geant 4.10, Pythia 8.18, SIBYLL and QGSJET, as well as compiling published data on $pp$ interactions close to the kinematic threshold, we parametrize the energy spectra and production rates of gamma-rays by simple but quite accurate ($\leq 20 \%$) analytical expressions in a broad range from the kinematic threshold to PeV energies.
