Abstract

TeV blazars offer an exciting prospect for discovering cosmological magnetic fields and for probing high-energy processes, including CP violation, in the early Universe. We propose a method for reconstructing both the nonhelical and the helical magnetic field correlators using observations of cascade photons from TeV blazars.
