This book highlights a comprehensive coverage of X-‐ray and Gamma‐ray astrophysics. The first and the second parts discuss, respectively, X-ray and Gamma-ray experimental techniques and observatories. The third part is devoted to science, including galactic and extragalactic sources. The fourth and last parts are dedicated to analysis techniques in X-ray and Gamma-ray astronomy: spectral analysis, imagining analysis, timing analysis, and polarimetric analysis. Presenting the state of the art in X-ray and gamma-ray astronomy, this is both a valuable book for students and an important reference resource for researchers in the field.



Cosimo Bambi is currently Xie Xide Junior Chair Professor at the Department of Physics at Fudan University (Shanghai, China). He received the Laurea degree from Florence University in 2003 and the PhD degree from Ferrara University in 2007. He was appointed as a postdoc at Wayne State University (Michigan), IPMU/The University of Tokyo (Japan), and at LMU Munich (Germany). He joined Fudan University at the end of 2012 under the 1000 Young Talents Program. His main research interests focus on black holes and observational tests of gravity models. He has received a number of awards, including the 2018 Magnolia Silver Award from the Municipality of Shanghai for outstanding contributions to Shanghai’s development, the 2018 Xu Guangqi Prize from the Embassy of Italy in Beijing as the best Italian scholar in China, a JSPS research fellowship from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science in 2016, and the nomination of Humboldt Fellow from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in 2015. He has published more than 150 papers on high impact factor refereed journals as first or corresponding author and has over 7,000 citations. He has published with Springer several books, either as author or as editor.
Professor Andrea Santangelo studied Physics at the University of Palermo in Italy and later specialised in Astrophysics at the Institute of Cosmic Physics of the Italian National Research Council, with Prof. Livio Scarsi, and at Columbia University, New York, with Prof. Robert Novick. After many years as staff scientist at the Italian CNR and INAF, Andrea Santangelo is since 2004 Professor of High Energy Astrophysics and Director of the High Energy Section of the Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics of the Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen in Germany. He has served several terms as Director of the Institute and as Chairman of the physics department. In 2009 he was granted a RIKEN Grant as Senior Scientist, while in 2010 he was co-recipient, as member of the HESS collaboration, of the "Bruno Rossi" Prize for the scientific achievements of the HESS Telescope, and in 2007 he was co-recipient, as member of the HESS collaboration, of the European "Descartes" Prize for the scientific achievements of the HESS Telescope. In 2016 he was granted a CAS President’s International Fellowship as Visiting Full Professor at IHEP (CAS), and since then he has kept a close collaboration with IHEP. He is among the very few scientists who has been granted a second CAS President’s International Fellowship in 2021. Prof. Santangelo’s research interests are in the field of multi-messenger astronomy with focus on High Energy Astrophysics, from a fraction of keV, in the X-rays, to 1021 eV in the Ultra High Energy Comic rays. He has participated, with leading roles, to many X-ray missions such as BeppoSAX, INTEGRAL, XMM-Newton, eROSITA, and more recently to eXTP, THESEUS and ATHENA. He is also leading research for the TeV observatories HESS and CTA, and in the past, the EUSO program for the search of Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays from space. Among the sources populating the High Energy Sky Prof. Santangelo likes very much X-ray binaries, elusive dark matter sources, TeV emitters. Andrea Santangelo has published about 500 articles in refereed journals in the fields of Experimental High Energy Astrophysics, Experimental TeV Astrophysics, Space Instrumentation, Space Based search for UHECRs, Galactic Compact objects: from accretion to population studies, Dark Matter indirect search, Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays, Instruments Calibration, Instrument Background studies.
