Gamma Ray Bursts and High Energy Astrophysics
Edited by Fumio Takahara, Takashi Nakamura and Noriaki Shibazaki
Recent observational development in high energy astrophysics, such as in cosmic gamma-ray bursts and extremely high energy cosmic rays, have attracted much attention.
This Supplement gathers review articles by world leaders in this field, based on invited lectures at the 15-th Nishinomiya-Yukawa Symposium on theoretical physics in 2000 to review the present theoretical and observational research.
The content includes Gamma-Ray Bursts (Meszaros, Kulkarni, Nakamura), Observational High Energy Astrophysics (Tanimori, Inoue, Teshima), Particle Acceleration (Ellison, Hoshino), Black Holes (Blandford) and Laser Astrophysics (Takabe). This volume provides a unique and coherent view on high energy astrophysics and is most appropriate to survey the present status of the field, especially to understand the fundamental theoretical problems with particle acceleration mechanism, relativistic fireball and black hole astrophysics. This volume is beneficial to researchers and graduate students in this field as well as to those in related fields, who are interested in high energy astrophysics.
