High Energy Phenomena in Massive Stars Conference (2009: Jaen, Spain) Ed. by Josep Marti et al.

Astronomical Soc./Pacific


306 pages



Astronomical Society of the Pacific conference series; v.422


The high energy from massive stars broadly overlaps with gamma rays, and a new generation of gamma-ray satellites and Cherenkov telescopes was the source for much of the information presented at the conference. The 30 papers cover particle acceleration in massive stars, gamma-ray production mechanisms in massive binaries with a compact companion, the stellar wind connection and feedback effects, gamma-rays in massive star-forming regions, non-thermal radio emission in massive gamma-ray emitting stars, gamma rays from isolated and binary massive stars without compact objects, other relevant aspects of massive stars, and the new telescopes and the future.
