 2017-06-1415:45 [PUBDB-2017-04984] Report/Journal Article et al Prospects for Cherenkov Telescope Array Observations of the Young Supernova Remnant RX J1713.7?3946 [arXiv:1704.04136] The astrophysical journal 840(2), 74 (2017) [10.3847/1538-4357/aa6d67]   We perform simulations for future Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) observations of RX J1713.7−3946, a young supernova remnant (SNR) and one of the brightest sources ever discovered in very high energy (VHE) gamma rays. Special attention is paid to exploring possible spatial (anti)correlations of gamma rays with emission at other wavelengths, in particular X-rays and CO/H i emission [...] Restricted: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2017-03-0311:10 [PUBDB-2017-01279] Journal Article Maier, G. Improved $\gamma$/hadron separation for the detection of faint $\gamma$-ray sources using boosted decision trees   Imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes record an enormous number of cosmic-ray background events. Suppressing these background events while retaining $\gamma$-rays is key to achieving good sensitivity to faint $\gamma$-ray sources.

(2016) [10.3204/PUBDB-2017-00337] = Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Diss., 2016   In astronomy, many of the observed sources show a transient behavior. Examples aregamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and active galactic nuclei (AGN).

They are thought to be sites of cosmic-ray acceleration, and are predicted to emit $\gamma$-rays in the GeV to TeV range.

Most current results are obtained either from di-rect measurements by balloon- or satellite-borne detectors, or from indirect measurements byair shower detector arrays on the Earth’s surface.

It is located in Sierra de San Pedro Martir (SPM) a few kilometers away from Observatorio Astron\'omico Nacional.

Molecular environment, reverberation, and radiation from the pulsar wind nebula in CTA 1 [arXiv:1603.09328] Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society 459(4), 3868 - 3879 (2016) [10.1093/mnras/stw684]   We estimate the molecular mass around CTA 1 using data from Planck and the Harvard CO survey. We observe that the molecular mass in the vicinity of the complex is not enough to explain the TeV emission observed by VERITAS, even under favorable assumptions for the cosmic ray acceleration properties of the supernova remnant.

(2016) [10.3204/PUBDB-2016-06536]   The next generation instrument for ground-based gamma-ray astronomy will be the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), consisting of approximately 100 telescopes in three sizes, built on two sites with one each in the Northern and Southern Hemi- spheres. Up to 40 of these will be Medium Size Telescopes (MSTs) which will dominate sensitivity in the core energy range. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA);
