      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.   It crackles in low-energy radio waves, blasts out high-energy gamma and x-rays, and shines at visible wavelengths in between. But this ultra-high-energy light .

It is fitting that, through his book, Weekes provides the most compre-hensive exposition to date on high-en-ergy gamma-ray astronomy. Very High Energy Gamma-Ray As-tronomy is written at the graduate or, perhaps, senior-undergraduate level. It is also a useful text for experimen-talists, observers, and Author: Matthew Baring.

It is four years since the first Workshop dedicated to. ISBN: OCLC Number: Notes: "Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Very High Energy Gamma Ray Astronomy, Durham, U.K., August"--Title page verso. High energy gamma-ray photons are the prime probes of the relativistic or high-energy universe, populated by black holes, neutron stars, supernovae, quasars, and matter-antimatter annihilations.

Through studying the gamma-ray sky, astrophysicists are able to better understand the formation and behavior of these exotic and energetic by: It is four years since the first Workshop dedicated to High Energy Gamma Ray Astronomy was held at Ootacamund, India.

At that meeting the developments in Very High Energy Gamma Ray Astronomy over a period of more than 20 years were reported and the methodology, limitations, improvements and prospects for further progess were discussed.

Foundations of gamma-ray astronomy Very high energy gamma-ray detectors High energy gamma-ray telescopes in space Galactic plane Supernovae and supernova remnants Gamma-ray observations of the Crab Nebula Gamma-ray observations of supernova remnants Gamma-ray pulsars and binaries Unidentified sources Very-high-energy gamma ray (VHEGR) denotes gamma radiation with photon energies of GeV (gigaelectronvolt) to TeV (teraelectronvolt), i.e., 10 11 to 10 14 electronvolts.

This is approximately equal to wavelengths between 10 −17 and 10 −20 meters, or frequencies of 2 × 10 25 to 2 × 10 28 Hz. Such energy levels have been detected from emissions from astronomical sources such as some.
