High energy astrophysics is one of the most exciting areas of contemporary astronomy, covering the most energetic phenomena in the universe. In the first volume of this two-volume textbook a thorough treatment is given of the physical processes that govern the behaviour of particles in astrophysical environments such as the interstellar gas, neutron stars, and black holes. Special emphasis is placed on how observations are made in high energy astrophysics and the limitations imposed on them. The tools of the astronomer and high energy astrophysicist are introduced in the context of specific astronomical problems.Malcolm S. Longair is the author of 'High Energy Astrophysics: Volume 1, Particles, Photons and their Detection', published 1992 under ISBN 9780521383745 and ISBN 0521383749.
