Partial contents:
Gamma rays at very high energies / Felix Aharonian -- Multi-messenger astronomy and dark matter / Lars Bergström -- Sources of GeV photons and the Fermi results / Charles D. Dermer.
Abstract: With the success of Cherenkov Astronomy and more recently with the launch of NASA's Fermi mission, very-high-energy astrophysics has undergone a revolution in the last years. This book provides three comprehensive and up-to-date reviews of the recent advances in gamma-ray astrophysics and of multi-messenger astronomy. Felix Aharonian and Charles Dermer address our current knowledge on the sources of GeV and TeV photons, gleaned from the precise measurements made by the new instrumentation. Lars Bergström presents the challenges and prospects of astro-particle physics with a particular emphasis.
