"This volume consists of invited talks and contributed papers presented at the conference 'Astrophysical Sources of High Energy Particles and Radiation', which was held in Toruń (Poland) in June of 2005"--Pref.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
The main purpose of this conference was to present an overview of the current state of research in the area of high energy astrophysics. In particular, the mechanisms of particle acceleration, generation of high energy radiation, and polarization properties of such emission were discussed. A broad range of compact and diffuse sources, ranging from stellar to extragalactic objects are covered. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
