On the basis of these spectra, conclusions can be drawn about the acceleration mechanisms in γ-ray sources.

In this thesis, the performance of the current- and next-generation imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes VERITAS and CTA is evaluated using Monte Carlo simulations.

The scientific potential of CTA is extremely broad: from understanding the role of relativistic cosmic particles to the search for dark matter.

With respect to the first FAVA catalog, this catalog benefits from a larger data set, the latest LAT data release (Pass 8), as well as from an improved analysis that includes likelihood techniques for a more precise localization of the transients.

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.

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. [...] Published on 2017-01-17.
