Main areas of scientific work

The activity of the our group covers several areas of Astrophysics and Astroparticle Physics: Although these studies have rather general character and are not limited by specific objects, astrophysical scenarios, radiation processes, energy bands, etc., generally they are conducted in the context of high energy gamma-ray phenomena recently revealed, in particular by HESS, in different galactic and extragalactic source populations.
Our group has a status of the second official group representing MPIK in the HESS collaboration. Therefore, a substantial fraction of the work of our group is conducted within the framework of the HESS experiment, especially in the context of interpretation of very high energy gamma-ray observations.
