Cosmic rays

  • COSMIC RAYS FOR PARTICLE AND ASTROPARTICLE PHYSICSby S. Giani; C. Leroy; P. G. Rancoita

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 293.00

    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...

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

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

    Springer Netherlands 2009; US$ 339.00

    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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
