Gamma rays in the band from 30 MeV to 300 GeV, used in combination with direct measurements and with data from radio and X-ray bands, provide a powerful tool for studying the origin of Galactic cosmic rays. Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST) with its fine 10–20 arcmin angular resolution will be able to map the sites of acceleration of cosmic rays and their interactions with interstellar matter. It will provide information that is necessary to study the acceleration of energetic…

Diffuse Gamma Rays from Local Group Galaxies

Diffuse γ-ray radiation in galaxies is produced by cosmic-ray interactions with the interstellar medium. With the completion of EGRET observations, the only extragalactic object from which there has

Acceleration of cosmic rays by shock waves

Theoretical work on various processes by which shock waves accelerate cosmic rays is reviewed. The most efficient of these processes, Fermi acceleration, is singled out for special attention. A

THE ACCELERATION OF COSMIC RAYS BY SHOCK WAVES

The problem of the origin of galactic cosmic rays is a particularly difficult one despite the fact that rather detailed measurements of the properties of cosmic rays can be made, at least in the
