ASTR 5450: High Energy Astrophysics

Year offered

An introduction to radiation and particle interactions, fluid and plasma dynamics, and other physical processes important to the study of high energy phenomena in astronomy. Techniques for X--ray, gamma--ray, and cosmic ray astronomy will be discussed briefly. Applications to cosmic rays, pulsars, supernovae, binary X--ray sources, gamma--ray sources, clusters of galaxies, and active galactic nuclei will be discussed.
