Invited Talk: Extragalactic Sources of Very High Energy Gamma-Ray Emission: Highlights from Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes

Speakers

  • Dr. Daniel MAZIN

Abstract content

The very high energy gamma-ray astrophysics with Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes is blooming thanks to the excellent performance of the experiments H.E.S.S., MAGIC and VERITAS. Large fraction of the scientific program of these experiments is devoted to observation of active galactic nuclei (such as blazars and radio galaxies) and follow-ups of gamma-ray burst alerts. In this talk I will highlight the progress of the field in the recent years revealing new and exciting phenomena studying of which answered some of long standing questions but also opened many new ones.
