    High-Energy Astrophysics provides graduate and advanced undergraduate students with the most complete, self-contained introduction to the subject available. This textbook covers all the essentials, weaving together the latest theory with the experimental techniques, instrumentation, and observational methods astronomers use to study high-energy. HEGRA, which stands for High-Energy-Gamma-Ray Astronomy, was an atmospheric Cherenkov telescope for Gamma-ray astronomy. With its various types of detectors, HEGRA took data between and , at which point it was dismantled in order to build its successor, MAGIC, at the same site. HEGRA is at masl.

    The focus of solar astronomy on the phenomena of a single star, and the necessity of close coordination in strategy and timing of solar observations over the entire spectrum, make it desirable to consider the status and future of high-energy observations in solar astronomy as a whole rather than separately as parts of x-ray, E W. gamma-ray, or.

Gamma ray astronomy, the branch of high energy astrophysics that studies the sky in energetic γ-ray photons, is destined to play a crucial role in the exploration of nonthermal phenomena in the Universe in their most extreme and violent forms.

The great potential of this discipline offers. Summary of this volume: The High Energy Gamma-Ray Astronomy was the sixth in a series of major international conferences in the field of gamma-ray astronomy, and was attended by leading experts as well as young scientists from universities and research centers from around the world.

The symposium covered the basic observational and many of the theoretical topics related to ground and space. This textbook presents ultraviolet and X-ray astronomy, gamma-ray astronomy, cosmic ray astronomy, neutrino astronomy, and gravitational wave astronomy as distinct research areas, focusing on the astrophysics targets and the requirements with respect to instrumentation and observation methods.

Very high energy gamma-ray astronomy, by Trevor C. Weekes. IoP Series in astronomy and astrophysics, ISBN Bristol, UK: The Institute of Physics Publishing,   Advanced; Basic; The History of Gamma-ray Astronomy Long before experiments could detect gamma-rays emitted by cosmic sources, scientists had known that the Universe should be producing such high energy work by several brilliant scientists had shown us that a number of different processes which were occurring in the Universe would result in gamma-ray emission.

Topics of the 22 invited talks include high-energy neutrino astronomy, the origin of galactic cosmic rays, the highest-energy cosmic rays, cosmic rays and gamma radiation from clusters of galaxies, gamma-ray blazars, non-thermal x-ray emission from supernova remnants, gamma-ray line astronomy, and neutrino telescopes.

Very High Energy Gamma-Ray Astronomy is written at the graduate or, perhaps, senior-undergraduate level. It is also a useful text for experimentalists, observers, and theorists. The book contains no worked problems, and readers desiring such will need to seek other sources to complement this text.

Because it is not heavily imbued with mathematical developments, the text is extremely digestible Author: Matthew Baring. Scientists earlier detected a small, high-energy gamma-ray halo around Geminga, but concluded it was an unlikely source of the positron excess. At lower energies, the gamma-ray halo around Geminga is much larger than the component made up of high-energy radiation.

If visible to human eyes, the low-energy halo would be larger than the full moon.Skip to main content.
