The main goal of this thesis is to study the physical processes that can produce non-thermal emission at high energies in astrophysical objects capable to accelerate particles up to relativistic velocities. In particular, we have studied the gamma-ray emission produced in cosmic sources with different spatial scales, from young stellar objects to clusters of galaxies, going through microquasars and active galactic nuclei. In the former cases, we have modeled the gamma-ray emission using the… Expand

High-energy radiation from the impact of high-velocity clouds on the galactic disk
High-velocity clouds (HVCs) are HI clouds with velocities of more than 100 km s−1. These clouds do not partake of the differential Galactic rotation; a significant fraction of them are falling downExpand
Radiación no térmica asociada a estrellas de gran masa
One of the biggest challenges in modern high-energy astrophysics is to understand the underlying connections between cosmic rays and non-thermal radiation, in particular γ-rays. Vast evidence linksExpand


Topics in cosmic-ray astrophysics
Cosmic radiation has been an active field of study at least since the heroic balloon flights of Viktor F. Hess in the first decade of this century. In the earliest days, cosmic ray physics meant aExpand
Origin of Cosmic Rays
The observed isotropy of the cosmic rays incident on the earth is claimed to be a consequence of a magnetic field assumed to exist in interstellar space, which is compared with the average interstellar field of 10−20 gauss. Expand
