    High Energy Astrophysics explores energetic events in the Universe with energies extending from the far UV through the keV X-rays and into the Y-ray band. Scientific investigations of objects range from the Sun to distant active galactic nuclei. Research includes . Abstract The origin of cosmic rays is considered along with the interaction of high energy particles with matter. The interactions of high energy photons and electron-photon cascades are discussed, taking into account photoelectric absorption, Compton scattering, pair production, and electron-photon cascades or electromagnetic showers.

    High Energy Physics (HEP) explores what the world is made of and how it works at the smallest and largest scales, seeking new discoveries from the tiniest particles to the outer reaches of space. This quest inspires young minds, trains an expert workforce, and drives innovation that improves the nation’s health, wealth, and security. High energy astrophysics Longair M.S. Providing students with an in-depth account of the astrophysics of high energy phenomena in the Universe, the third edition of this well-established textbook is ideal for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate courses in high energy astrophysics.
