  • About the Edition

    This volume comprises selected lectures presented in the Ninth Course of the International School of Cosmic-Ray Astrophysics held at the Ettore Majorana Centre in Erice, Sicily, May 7--18, 1994. Devoted to problems and prospects in high-energy astrophysics and cosmology, the major areas explored are: gamma-ray, X-ray, and neutrino astronomies; cosmic rays; pulsars and supernova remnants; and cosmology, as well as cosmogony. Among the principal developments in gamma-ray astrophysics are those generated by the COMPTON Gamma Ray Observatory. Cosmic neutrinos at MeV energies, i.e., those from the Sun and from Supernova 1987a, are discussed, as well as neutrino masses in astrophysics. The source composition of cosmic rays, and extensive air shower experiments, receive special attention. The early universe according to COBE data, and as viewed by theorists of cosmology, is reviewed. Finally, the connections with particle physics occasioned a timely description of the Standard Model of elementary particles. The cosmic-ray community, the International School of Cosmic-Ray Astrophysics, and indeed the world of science have recently suffered grievous losses in the demise of Pierre Auger, Giuseppe Occhialini, and Bruno Rossi. Accordingly, a memorial session was included in the program. In the same session a farewell tribute was paid by M.M. Shapiro and A.E. Smith to the late Kyoung Hye Moon, an enthusiastic student of our School, who missed this Course when a rampant illness cut short her promising career.

    In the last two decades, cosmology, particle physics, high energy astrophysics and gravitational physics have become increasingly interwoven. The intense activity taking place at the intersection of these disciplines is constantly progressing, with the advent of major cosmic ray, neutrino, gamma ray and gravitational wave observatories for studying cosmic sources, along with the construction Cited by: 8.

    ROSAT was the workhorse high-energy astrophysics mission of the s, conducting an all-sky survey in the soft X-ray band ( - keV) in and then many pointed observations through late Despite its fiery demise, ROSAT's legacy archive of data is available at the HEASARC.

High-energy astrophysics studies the Universe at the extreme. Black holes, neutron stars, exploding supernovae, and relativistically moving jets continually challenge our understanding of the behavior of matter at extreme densities and temperatures, high velocities, enormous magnetic fields, and strong gravity. Understanding these extreme environments is key to interpreting.

High energy astronomy is the study of astronomical objects that release electromagnetic radiation of highly energetic includes X-ray astronomy, gamma-ray astronomy, and extreme UV astronomy, as well as studies of neutrinos and cosmic physical study of these phenomena is referred to as high-energy astrophysics.

INTRODUCTION TO HIGH-ENERGY ASTROPHYSICS High-energy astrophysics covers cosmic phenomena that occur under the most extreme physical conditions. It explores the most violent events in the Universe: the explosion of stars, matter falling into black holes, and gamma-ray bursts – the most luminous explosions since the Big Bang.

The book is for professional astronomers and may serve as a quick and very useful reference to becoming acquainted with the main developments in the field of high-energy astrophysics beginning of Author: Fulvio Melia.

–1– Current Research in High-Energy Astrophysics High-energy astrophysics involves phenomena in rather extreme physical situations.

These include ultrastrong magnetic fields (up to G), strongly curved spacetime (such as near the horizon of a black hole). The Journal of High Energy Astrophysics (JHEAp) is the first astrophysical journal that focuses on the study of highly energetic phenomena. Pivoting on this general topic, and in the belief that boundaries in astronomy are naturally fading, JHEAp seeks the most impacting and scientifically sound papers, those generally crossing specialization.
