Abstract : The existence of a spatial anisotropy for the electron component of cosmic rays is considered for the energy range of 100 to 1000 GeV. It is found that an anisotropy as large as 1 percent is likely to be seen at energies as low as 100 GeV. Expressions are derived for the energy dependence of the anisotropy based on a model in which local pulsars are the predominant electron sources. Supernova radia remnants are considered as possible additional sources. (Author)
