By G. Kanbach (auth.), Maurice M. Shapiro, Rein Silberberg, John P. Wefel (eds.)

This quantity includes chosen lectures offered within the 9th process the foreign tuition of Cosmic-Ray Astrophysics held on the Ettore Majorana Centre in Erice, Sicily, might 7--18, 1994. dedicated to difficulties and customers in high-energy astrophysics and cosmology, the most important parts explored are: gamma-ray, X-ray, and neutrino astronomies; cosmic rays; pulsars and supernova remnants; and cosmology, in addition to cosmogony.
one of the valuable advancements in gamma-ray astrophysics are these generated through the COMPTON Gamma Ray Observatory. Cosmic neutrinos at MeV energies, i.e., these from the solar and from Supernova 1987a, are mentioned, in addition to neutrino plenty in astrophysics. The resource composition of cosmic rays, and wide air bathe experiments, obtain targeted recognition. The early universe in line with COBE facts, and as considered via theorists of cosmology, is reviewed. ultimately, the connections with particle physics occasioned a well timed description of the normal version of easy debris.
The cosmic-ray neighborhood, the overseas college of Cosmic-Ray Astrophysics, and certainly the area of technology have lately suffered grievous losses within the death of Pierre Auger, Giuseppe Occhialini, and Bruno Rossi. therefore, a memorial consultation used to be incorporated within the software. within the related consultation a farewell tribute was once paid through M.M. Shapiro and A.E. Smith to the overdue Kyoung Hye Moon, an enthusiastic pupil of our college, who overlooked this path while a rampant affliction minimize brief her promising occupation.

Optimization and Chaos

This choice of essays brings jointly a few articles on dynamic optimization versions that express chaotic habit. Chapters three, four, five, 6, 7, and nine seemed in a Symposium on Chaotic Dynamical structures in financial conception (Volume four, quantity five, 1994). additionally, Chapters 10,11, and 12 seemed within the magazine of financial The­ ory.

The Dynamic Structure of Cell Membranes

HERBERT FISCHER Max-Planck-Institut fur Immunbiologie, Freiburg-Zahringen With three Figures girls and gents: On behalf of the organizers of the twenty second Mosbach Colloquium, Msrs. HOLZL-WALLACH, STOFFEL, WIEGANDT and myself, I bid you all a hearty welcome. We thanks interested in coming and of course suppose specific appreciation for the presence of the invited audio system.

Cyst Nematodes

The cyst nematodes are a big workforce of plant pathogens of monetary value in lots of international locations during the global. significant yield losses were attributed to cyst nematodes attacking potatoes, sugar beet, soybean and cereals. as a result of protecting cyst that's shaped, which encloses the eggs, they pose exact difficulties of their keep an eye on and in addition in fighting their distribution in soil from infested parts.

Wind Generated Shocks and Particle Acceleration Early type stars (0, early Band Wolf-Rayet stars) occupy the upper left corner of the Hertzsprung-Russel (H-R) diagram. These stars are all very hot (Tell> 20 000 K) and with masses that exceeds 20 Me (progenitor mass for Wolf Rayet (WR) stars) and very luminous (Lbol ...... 105 - 106 Le ). s- 1 (Cassinelli 1979). In the case of WR stars, these winds are carrying mass away which is orders of magnitude greater than the radiation pressure and there is still no mechanism which successfully explains this phenomenon.

I shall assume that the convection velocity, V, the diffusion coefficient, D( E) = DoEll, and the radiative energy loss rate, boE 2, do not depend on the spatial coordinates. In their analysis of NGC4631 and NGC891, L5 concluded that this simplification allows one to obtain a reasonably complete picture of the relevant physical processes, while keeping the calculations relatively simple. 04[B 2 /(81l") + WFIR + W CM B] erg- 1 s-1, where WFIR and WCMB are the energy densities of the FIR and cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation in ergcm- 3 .
