Abstract

The cross section for muon pair productions by electrons scattering over photons, σMPP, is calculated analytically in the leading order. It is pointed out that for the center-of-mass energy range s≥5mμ2, the cross section σMPP is less than 1 μb. The differential energy spectrum for either of the resulting muons is given for the purpose of high-energy neutrino astronomy. An implication of our result for a recent suggestion concerning the high-energy cosmic neutrino generation through this muon pair is discussed.
