Cosmic rays

  • Solar Cosmic Raysby Leonty Miroshnichenko

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 229.00

    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...

  • 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...

  • Cosmic Rays in Star-Forming Environmentsby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 299.00

    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...

  • Instruments and Methods for the Radio Detection of High Energy Cosmic Raysby Frank Schröder

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 129.00

    Cosmic rays consist of elementary particles with enormous energy which originate from outside our solar system and constantly hit the Earth?s atmosphere. Where do these cosmic rays originate? How does nature accelerate the cosmic-ray particles to energies with orders of magnitude beyond the limits of manmade particle accelerators? What can we learn... more...

  • Celestial Messengersby Mario Bertolotti

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 39.95

    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$ 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 Ray Diffusion in the Galaxy and Diffuse Gamma Emissionby Daniele Gaggero

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 129.00

    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...

  • L'enigma dei raggi cosmiciby Alessandro De Angelis

    Springer Milan 2011; US$ 29.95

    Grazie ad avventurosi studi fu possibile dimostrare un secolo fa che parte della radiazione naturale che si osserva sulla Terra è 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...
