Ground-based gamma-ray astronomy

Ground-based gamma-ray astronomy

*Jim Hinton (MPIK)*

Outline:

This will be a series of three lectures on ground-based gamma-ray astronomy, interfacing with the topics covered in the talks by Werner Hofmann, Alison Mitchell and Pooja Surajbali.

**Cosmological aspects of high energy astrophysics**

*Yoshiyuki Inoue (Osaka)*

Outline:

This will be a series of four lectures. In this lecture series, I will cover the high energy astrophysics in the cosmological context. High energy astrophysics sounds far from the cosmology, but it can bring a variety of knowledge on the cosmic history. First, I will cover the cosmological evolution of high energy astrophysical objects and their contribution to the cosmic background radiation. Second, I will cover the role of gamma-ray astrophysics in the study of the cosmic star formation history. Lastly, I would like to talk about the intergalactic magnetic field study using gamma-ray measurements.

**Fundamentals of observational high-energy astrophysics**

*Albert Kong (NTHU)*

Outline:

This lecture series consists of 3 lectures. I will first give a brief overview of the principles of observations for high-energy astrophysics and introduce a few important high-energy astrophysics facilities with a highlight on the science impacts. Then, I will discuss the prospects of future high-energy missions in the coming decade. At the end of the lecture series, a science case of gamma-ray observations of novae will be presented.

**Cosmic particle acceleration**

*Frank Rieger (ZAH/Heidelberg)*

Outline:

This will be a series of five lectures. Topics covered will include rotational acceleration, reconnection, gap acceleration as well as Fermi-type (shock, stochastic, shear) particle acceleration. Each lecture will introduce the basic concept, summarize important physics results, discuss an exemplary application and indicate current trends and developments.

** Multi-messenger astrophysics and gamma-ray astrophysical sources**

*Kinwah Wu (MSSL/UCL)*

Outline:

This will be a series of five lectures. The first two will be on:

(1) Black holes, gravitational waves and high-energy relativistic astrophysics

The remaining three lectures will be on:

(2) Multi-messenger astrophysics in the framework of gamma-ray astronomy.

These will cover X-ray, optical, IR, radio, gravitational waves and neutrinos in the context of ultra high-energy gamma-ray astrophysics.

Cosmic ray feedback in galaxies and clusters

*Hsiang-Yi Karen Yang (NTHU)*

Outline:

This will be a series of three lectures. Topics to be covered include modeling cosmic rays, the Fermi bubbles, and cosmic ray feedback in galaxies and clusters.
