Wolfendale, Arnold W., Murthy, Poolia V.


Gamma-ray astronomy gives us a view of the Universe through the most recent window to have been opened. The emphasis in this account is firmly on the astronomy and astrophysics of known sources of cosmic gamma-rays outside the solar system. The authors first introduce the mechanisms for the production and absorption of gamma-rays. The line astronomy of the interstellar medium, galactic centre, and various discrete sources is then discussed. Gamma-ray bursts are treated in considerable detail, in view of the need for a comprehensive review of this important topic. The two final chapters describe medium energy and ultra-high energy gamma rays. This book includes comprehensive references to the primary literature, together with tables and graphs.Wolfendale, Arnold W. is the author of 'Gamma-Ray Astronomy' with ISBN 9780521305280 and ISBN 0521305284.
