The Monte Carlo method is used to analyze muon groups generated by the nuclei of the primary cosmic rays. A comparison of the characteristics of showers generated by nuclei and protons leads to the conclusion that the superposition model is valid. Calculations have been carried out for Εμ = 0.2 TeV, which corresponds to the lowest threshold energy for the detection of muons at the Baksan underground scintillation telescope.
