Speaker

Prof. Peter Meszaros (Pennsylvania State University)

Description

I will review the most prominent types of extragalctic gamma-ray sources, such as gamma-ray bursts, AGNs and other galaxies, including some specific individual sources, and the effects expected from intergalactic shocks. I will then discuss some of the physical models used to describe these objects, and the possible connections between the gamma-ray emission and cosmic ray as well as neutrino fluxes, together with the related diffuse radiations backgrounds.
