Gamma ray astronomy

Most popular at the top

  • Science with the New Generation of High Energy Gamma-Ray Experimentsby Alessandro De Angelis; Oriana Mansutti

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2006; US$ 193.00

    The contributions in this volume provide a snapshot of the latest research and future plans for space-borne and ground-based experiments dedicated to the observation of the gamma-ray sky. The articles are authored by both seasoned veterans of the first dedicated gamma-ray missions, and young scientists entering the fascinating field of gamma-ray astrophysics.... more...

  • Very High Energy Cosmic Gamma Radiationby Michael D Smith

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 252.00

    Gamma ray astronomy, the branch of high energy astrophysics that studies the sky in energetic ?-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 impressive coverage of many ?hot topics? of modern astrophysics... more...

  • Very High Energy Gamma-Ray Astronomyby T.C. Weekes

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 220.00

    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 bodies. Very High... more...

  • The Biggest Bangsby Jonathan Katz

    Oxford University Press 2002; US$ 44.99

    For over 25 years, gamma-ray bursts were the outstanding mystery in astronomy. No one knew where they were or how they worked. 'The Biggest Bangs' tells how the mystery was unravelled, from the discovery of gamma-ray bursts by a Cold War satellite system monitoring the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty to the localization of bursts in distant galaxies. more...

  • Gamma-Ray Burstsby Gilbert Vedrenne

    Springer 2009; US$ 219.00

    Since their discovery was first announced in 1973, gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) have been among the most fascination objects in the universe. This work gives an account on both the history and the perspectives of GRB research. more...

  • Astrophysics at Very High Energiesby Felix Aharonian; Lars Bergström; Charles Dermer; Roland Walter; Marc Türler

    Springer 2013; US$ 99.00

    With the success of Cherenkov Astronomy and more recently with the launch of NASA’s Fermi mission, very-high-energy astrophysics has undergone a revolution in the last years. This book provides three comprehensive and up-to-date reviews of the recent advances in gamma-ray astrophysics and of multi-messenger astronomy. Felix Aharonian and Charles... more...

  • Searching for the Long-Duration Gamma-Ray Burst Progenitorby Robert Allan Mesler

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Nominated as an outstanding thesis by the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of New Mexico, this thesis seeks to identify the gamma-ray burst (GRB) progenitor. GRBs are extragalactic explosions that briefly outshine entire galaxies, but the mechanism that can release that much energy over a < 100 second burst is still a mystery.... more...

  • What Are Gamma-Ray Bursts?by Joshua S. Bloom

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 30.95

    Gamma-ray bursts are the brightest--and, until recently, among the least understood--cosmic events in the universe. Discovered by chance during the cold war, these evanescent high-energy explosions confounded astronomers for decades. But a rapid series of startling breakthroughs beginning in 1997 revealed that the majority of gamma-ray bursts are... more...
