The emphasis is on the astronomy and astrophysics of known sources of cosmic gamma-rays outside the solar system. The authors discuss the mechanisms for the production and absorption of gamma-rays. The gamma-ray line astronomy of the interstellar medium, galactic center, and various discrete sources is then by: Galactic Astrophysics and Gamma-Ray Astronomy Proceedings of a Meeting Organised in the Context of the XVIII General Assembly of the IAU, held in Patras, Greece, Aug Title: Book-Review - Galactic Astrophysics and Gamma-Ray Astronomy: Authors: Morfill, G. E.; Buccheri, R.; Mucket, J. P. Publication: Astronomische Nachrichten, Vol. Much about galactic astrophysics is oriented toward basic classical physics, and fairly simple ideas from relativity and quantum mechanics. Thus, this book is accessible to a very wide audience. The deep puzzles of dark matter and the evidence for massive black holes at the center of galaxies, as well as the complexity of galactic evolution, make a book like this of some value today/5(19).

Galactic Cosmic Rays, Halos, Milky Way Galaxy, Computational Astrophysics, Gamma Ray Astronomy: Bibliographic Code: : Abstract Theoretical investigations of the Galactic halo are reviewed, with emphasis on work done at the Physics Institute of the Soviet Academy of Sciences. These studies have demonstrated that the Galaxy has.   Galactic astronomy is the study of our own Galaxy (The Milky Way) while extragalactic astronomy is the study of other galaxies. Our Sun is merely one of hundreds of billions of stars in the Galaxy, and our Galaxy is but one of hundreds of billions of galaxies in the observable universe.
