Particle astrophysics


Particle astrophysics

Particle astrophysics can be defined as the border between particle physics and cosmology (for example, the physics of the early universe, baryogenesis, cosmological nucleosynthesis, dark matter, monopoles, the origin of structure), particle and stellar physics (for example, solar neutrinos, supernovae neutrinos), and particle physics and high energy astrophysics (from compact objects to high energy cosmic rays).
