Cosmic rays

  • Celestial Messengersby Mario Bertolotti

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 38.09

    This book describes from a historical point of view research in cosmic rays and how they were discovered. It covers how the knowledge was gained, detailing the main experiments and the conclusions drawn. more...

  • High Energy Astrophysicsby Thierry J.-L. Courvoisier

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 76.20

    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...

  • L'enigma dei raggi cosmiciby Alessandro De Angelis

    Springer Milan 2011; US$ 15.55

    Grazie ad avventurosi studi fu possibile dimostrare un secolo fa che parte della radiazione naturale che si osserva sulla Terra di natura extraterrestre: era la scoperta dei cosiddetti ?raggi cosmici?, particelle che arrivano da misteriosi acceleratori nell?universo, probabilmente buchi neri supermassicci e resti di supernova, a energie anche centinaia... more...

  • Cosmic Rays in Magnetospheres of the Earth and other Planetsby Lev Dorman

    Springer Netherlands 2009; US$ 325.53

    This monograph describes the behavior of cosmic rays (CR), mostly in the magnetosphere of the Earth and of some other planets. Recently this has become an important topic both theoretically and practically. more...

  • Cosmic Ray Diffusion in the Galaxy and Diffuse Gamma Emissionby Daniele Gaggero

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 97.97

    In this key contribution to modern cosmic ray physics, the author presents fresh numerical code for modeling cosmic ray propagation, and sets out credible evidence for a new spectral component that could be generated by the destruction or decay of dark matter. more...


    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 180.00

    The conference was aimed at promoting contacts between scientists involved in solar-terrestrial physics, space physics, astroparticle physics and cosmology both from the theoretical and the experimental approach. The conference was devoted to physics and physics requirements, survey of theoretical models and performances of detectors employed (or to... 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Solar Cosmic Raysby Leonty Miroshnichenko

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 163.30

    Presents a comprehensive approach to the open questions in solar cosmic ray research and includes consistent and detailed considerations of conceptual, observational, theoretical, experimental and applied aspects of the field. The results of solar cosmic ray (SCR) investigations from 1942 to the present are summarized in this book. It treats the research... more...
