High Energy Densities Outside of Compact Astrophysical Objects

  • Vladimir E. Fortov
Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 216)


In this chapter we discuss the high-energy objects in the Universe like cosmic jets, radiative shock waves, molecular clouds, cosmic rays, and gamma-ray bursts. We complete our consideration with a section concerned with the transformation of matter after the Big Bang, from the inception of the Universe to our time.
