Scope of this Symposium

  • E. J. A. Meurs (a1)

Extract

The original idea for this IAU Symposium arose from realizing that present-day X-ray satellites, XMM-Newton and Chandra, are now allowing us to conduct studies of individual X-ray sources in other galaxies, much like this was until recently mostly confined to sources in our own Galaxy and in the Magellanic Clouds. In addition, $\gamma$-ray astronomy is catching up as it were, now being able to study well-defined sources in our own Galaxy with the INTEGRAL satellite, and also the highest-energy sources accessible, at TeV, with the newly constructed Cherenkov receiver array(s).
