Cosmic rays

Most popular at the top

  • High Energy Astrophysicsby Thierry J.-L. Courvoisier

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 99.00

    Discussing objects with variability timescales as short as years, months, days and hours, down to milli-seconds, this book describes and derives the physical processes of astrophysics and studies objects in which high-energy astrophysics processes are crucial. more...

  • Cosmic Rays in Star-Forming Environmentsby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 259.00

    These are the proceedings of the Sant Cugat Forum 2nd Workshop on Cosmic-ray Induced Phenomenology in Stellar Environments, held April 16-19, 2012. The aim of this Workshop was to address the current knowledge and challenges of high-energy emission from stellar environments at all scales and provide a comprehensive review of the state of the field... more...

  • Extensive Air Showersby M.V.S. Rao; B.V. Sreekantan

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 154.00

    Ultrahigh energy cosmic rays carry information about their sources and the intervening medium apart from providing a beam of particles for studying certain features of high energy interactions currently inaccessible at man-made accelerators. They can at present be studied only via the extensive air showers (EAS's) they generate while passing through... more...

  • Cosmic Raysby A. M. Hillas; Robert Robinson; Dean Athelstan Spilhaus; D. Ter Haar

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Cosmic Rays is a two-part book that first elucidates the discovery, nature, and particles produced by cosmic rays. This part also looks into the primary cosmic radiation; radio waves from the galaxy; extensive air showers; origin of cosmic rays; and other cosmic radiations. Part 2 consists of reprinted papers involving cosmic rays. Papers 1 to 10... more...

  • The Origin of Cosmic Raysby V. L. Ginzburg; S. I. Syrovatskii

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    The Origin of Cosmic Rays examines the astrophysical phenomena that cause cosmic rays. The title details the concerns in the study of tracing the sources of cosmic rays. The text presents the primary cosmic rays on earth, and then proceeds to tackling ling the cosmic magnetic bremsstrahlung radio emission and cosmic rays in the universe. Next, the... more...

  • Cloud Chamber Photographs of the Cosmic Radiationby G. D. Rochester; J. G. Wilson

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 31.95

    Cloud Chamber Photographs of the Cosmic Radiation focuses on cloud chamber and photographic emulsion wherein the tracks of individual subatomic particles of high energy are studied. The publication first offers information on the technical features of operation and electrons and cascade showers. Discussions focus on the relationship in time and space... more...

  • Relativistic Astrophysics And Cosmology - Proceedings Of The 13th Course Of The International School Of Cosmic Ray Astrophysicsby Maurice M Shapiro; Todor Stanev; John P Wefel

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 234.00

    This book constitutes the proceedings of the 13th Course of the International School of Cosmic Ray Astrophysics. It focuses on major areas of astrophysics, their relation to cosmic ray physics, and our current understanding of the energetic processes in the Galaxy and the Universe that govern the acceleration and form the features of the cosmic rays... more...

  • Energy Budget In The High Energy Universeby Katsuhiko Sato; Junji Hisano

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 287.00

    The existence of materials with very high specific energies greatly exceeding the local virial temperature is best represented by cosmic rays, whose origin has long been a mystery. Recent astrophysical observations in X-ray, gamma-ray, neutrino, and high energy cosmic ray experiments, in conjunction with theoretical studies, have revealed various new... more...

  • Cosmic Rays at Earthby P.K.F. Grieder

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 340.00

    In 1912 Victor Franz Hess made the revolutionary discovery that ionizing radiation is incident upon the Earth from outer space. He showed with ground-based and balloon-borne detectors that the intensity of the radiation did not change significantly between day and night. Consequently, the sun could not be regarded as the sources of this radiation... more...

  • A Search for Muon Neutrino to Electron Neutrino Oscillations in the MINOS Experimentby Juan Pedro Ochoa-Ricoux

    Springer New York 2011; US$ 179.00

    Nominated as an outstanding contribution from the California Institute of Technology, this volume lays the foundation for new research in the field of neutrinos. This in-depth, creative approach to a variety of complex problems is an outstanding example for graduate students and practitioners alike. more...
