    Spanning everything from major observatories and space telescopes to biographies of astronomers throughout the centuries, The Universal Book of Astronomy showcases an extraordinary array of newfound wonders, including microquasars, brown dwarfs, and dark energy, as well as a host of individual comets, asteroids, moons, planets, stars, nebulas.   Microquasars are greedy black holes that gobble up material from stars hovering nearby and shoot out powerful gamma ray beams. One particular specimen, codenamed SS

    The workshop focuses on the physics of relativistic jet sources in the Universe, from Galactic Microquasars to Active Galactic Nuclei and Gamma-Ray Bursts.

But for a quasar, the central object is a supermassive black hole of millions of solar masses, whereas for a microquasar, the compact object is a black hole or a neutron star of only a few solar masses.

The study of microquasars, the sources in our Galaxy displaying powerful re­ lativistic jets, is a rapidly advancing field in astrophysics. The new instrumentation on ground (MERLIN, SCUBA, VLA, VLT) and aboard satellites (ASCA, BSAX, ISO, IXAE and RXTE) has provided important results, and much more is expected to come from Chandra and XMM-Newton.

Microquasars book this book These Lecture Notes focus on the physics of relativistic jet sources in the universe, from galactic microquasars to active galactic nuclei (AGN).

The early 21 st century is an epoch in which a large number of high-energy astronomical missions are underway (RossiXTE, Chandra, XMM-Newton, INTEGRAL, Swift, Suzaku).

Microquasars are opening new horizons for the understanding of ultraluminous X- ray sources observed in external galaxies, gamma-ray bursts of long duration, and the origin of stellar black holes and neutron stars.

Microquasars are one of the best. The physics section of the book is divided into microquasars and pulsar wind nebulae (PWNe), and includes extended overviews of both. In turn, the book discusses constraints on particle acceleration and gamma-ray production in microquasar jets, based on the analyses of MAGIC data on Cygnus X-1, Cygnus X-3 and V Cygni.

This book covers the topic of accretion/ejection in relativistic jet sources with a broad approach, from microquasars to AGN, discussing both observational and theoretical aspects. The aim is to present a broad view of the field and the current standpoint now that the first comparative studies have opened the way to a global study at a mass scale.

Microquasars are compact objects (stellar-mass black holes and neutron stars) that mimic, on a smaller scale, many of the phenomena seen in quasars. Their discovery provided new insights into the.

"Microquasars" in Our Own Galaxy In far-distant quasars and galaxies, millions or even billions of light-years away, the gravitational energy of supermassive black holes is capable of accelerating "jets" of subatomic particles to speeds approaching that of light.

The VLA has observed such jets for many years. CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Summary. Microquasars are compact objects (stellar-mass black holes and neutron stars) that mimic, on a smaller scale, many of the phenomena seen in quasars. Their discovery provided new insights into the physics of relativistic jets observed elsewhere in the universe, and in particular, the accretion–jet coupling.

Microquasars ' properties - strong emission across a broad range of wavelengths, rapid brightness changes, and radio jets - resemble miniature versions of distant galaxies (called quasars and blazars) whose emissions are thought to be powered by enormous black holes.

Microquasars are X-ray binaries that present non-thermal radio jets. Efficient particle acceleration can take place in different regions of the jets of microquasars. A microquasar, the smaller version of a quasar, is a compact region surrounding a black hole with a mass several times that of both its companion star and our Sun.

The matter being pulled from the companion star forms an accretion disk around the black hole. This accretion disk may become so hot, due to friction, that it begins to emit X-rays.

The disk also projects narrow streams or "jets" of. I present an overview of past, present and future research on microquasars and jets, showing that microquasars, i.e.

galactic jet sources, are among the best. This comprehensive guide to astronomy introduces the basic concepts, explaining what, when, and how to observe space, right through to current theories on everything from black holes to microquasars. It helps you to navigate the night sky, identify the constellations and find planets, comets.

Black Hole Binaries and Microquasars Shuang-Nan Zhang1;2 1Laboratory for Particle Astrophysics, Institute of High Energy Physics,BeijingChina. 2National Astronomical Observatories, Chinese Academy Of Sciences, BeijingChina. A microquasar is an object of stellar mass that displays in miniature some of the properties of quasars, including strong emission across a broad range of wavelengths from radio wave to X-ray, rapid variability in X-rays, and radio jets.A microquasar consists of a binary system in which a normal star orbits around, and loses matter to, a nearby compact object, either a black hole or a neutron.
