With the good fortune of Cherenkov Astronomy and extra lately with the release of NASA’s Fermi undertaking, very-high-energy astrophysics has gone through a revolution within the final years. This booklet presents 3 complete and updated reports of the hot advances in gamma-ray astrophysics and of multi-messenger astronomy. Felix Aharonian and Charles Dermer deal with our present wisdom at the resources of GeV and TeV photons, gleaned from the perfect measurements made through the recent instrumentation. Lars Bergström provides the demanding situations and clients of astro-particle physics with a selected emphasis at the detection of darkish subject applicants. the subjects coated via the fortieth Saas-Fee direction current the features of present instrumentation and the physics at play in resources of very-high-energy radiation to scholars and researchers alike. This e-book will inspire and get ready readers for utilizing house and ground-based gamma-ray observatories, in addition to neutrino and different multi-messenger detectors.
