    Abstract:

    The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) is a new generation high-energy physics experiment installed on the International Space Station in May 2011 and operating continuously since then. Using an unprecedently large collection of particles and antiparticles detected in space, AMS is performing precision measurements of cosmic ray energy spectra and composition. In this paper, we discuss the physics of solar modulation in Galactic cosmic rays that can be investigated with AMS my means of dedicated measurements on the time-dependence of cosmic-ray proton, helium, electron and positron fluxes.
