Abstract : The experimental and theoretical methods of investigating the variations of cosmic rays (time variations of their intensity) are presented. Systematized analysis of the accumulated experi mental material, and consideration of the hypotheses that have been proposed for the origin of various types of variations are presented. A theory is proposed for the origin of the variations, and their correlation with various geophysical and astrophysical phenomena is examined, in particular their correlation with the properties of the solar corpuscular streams and with the electromagnetic conditions in the neighborhood of the earth, in the solar atmosphere, in interplanetary space, and in the Galaxy.
