Probing Cosmic Accelerators Using VHE Gamma Rays and UHE Cosmic Rays

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The γ-ray emission observed in several classes of Galactic and extragalactic astrophysical sources appears to be linked to accreting black holes and rotational powered neutron stars. These systems are prodigious cosmic accelerators, and are also potential sources of the UHE cosmic rays detected by several experiments and VHE neutrinos. We review a recent progress in our understanding of these objects, and demonstrate how recent and future observations can be employed to probe the conditions in the sources.
