Gamma-ray astronomy is the astronomical observation of gamma rays, the most energetic form of electromagnetic radiation, with photon energies above keV.

Radiation below keV is classified as X-rays and is the subject of X-ray astronomy. In most known cases, gamma rays from solar flares. Abstract This monograph reviews the major theoretical and experimental efforts made during the past 12 years in gamma-ray astronomy over the energy range from 10 keV to about MeV, where nuclear-transition lines are expected.

By exploring the universe at these high energies, scientists can search for new physics, testing theories and performing experiments which are not possible in earth-bound laboratories.

Andrew Levan is a professor of astronomy and astrophysics at The University of Warwick. He has spent most of his career focussing on the origins of gamma-ray bursts and their use as cosmic probes, utilising a wide range of ground- and space-based telescopes across the electromagnetic spectrum.

The field of gamma-ray astronomy has experienced impressive progress over the last decade. Thanks to the advent of a new generation of imaging air Cherenkov telescopes (H.E.S.S., MAGIC, VERITAS) and thanks to the launch of the Fermi-LAT satellite, several thousand gamma-ray sources are known today, revealing an unexpected ubiquity of particle acceleration processes in the by: This monograph reviews the major theoretical and experimental efforts made during the past 12 years in gamma-ray astronomy over the energy range from 10 keV to about MeV, where nuclear-transition lines are expected.

Early attempts to detect celestial gamma rays are recounted, mechanisms of gamma-ray line and continuum production are examined, and formulas giving the various possible. Colleen Wilson-Hodge has 28 years of experience working in gamma-ray astronomy at NASA.

The origin of the extragalactic gamma‐ray background (EGRB) is an important open issue in the gamma‐ray astronomy. There are many theories about the origin of EGRB: (1) some truly diffuse processes, such as dark matter (DM) annihilation or decay, which can produce gamma rays; (2) gamma rays produced by energetic particles accelerated through induced shock waves during structure Author: Houdun Zeng, Li Zhang.

Astronomy (The Textbook) The Mystery of the Gamma-Ray Bursts Astronomy includes the studying of objects beyond the planet Earth and the investigation of underlying physics of this. Gamma-ray astronomy is radiation astronomy applied to the various extraterrestrial gamma-ray sources, especially at night.

It is usually conducted above the Earth's atmosphere and at locations away from the Earth as a part of explorational (or exploratory) gamma-ray astronomy. Astronomy is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of one- or two-semester introductory astronomy courses.

The book begins with relevant scientific fundamentals and progresses through an exploration of the solar system, stars, galaxies, and cosmology. The Astronomy textbook builds student understanding through the use of relevant.

Astronomers are building the LSST to observe with an unprecedented field of view and a new generation of visible-light/infrared telescopes with apertures of to 39 meters in diameter.Gamma-ray astronomy has also proved to be a powerful tool for cosmology imposing constraints to the background photon fields that can absorb the gamma-ray flux from dis­ tant sources.

All this has profound implications for our current ideas about how particles are accelerated and transported in both the local and distant U niverse.This book is within the scope of WikiProject Astronomy, which collaborates on articles related to Astronomy on Wikipedia.
