What we do

We are studying various high energy processes in astrophysics. Among them are: electrons and nuclei acceleration on shock waves and subsequent emission with applications to interplanetary medium, supernova remnants, high velocity clouds and cosmic rays; nuclei line emission; accretion to neutron stars, star formation regions.

We are glad to present our results of the observation of gamma-Cygni SNR by INTEGRAL space observatory together with the model of the nonthermal emission from SNRs presented on the Odessa Memorial Gamow's Conference, Odessa, Ukraine, August 2005.
Here we present results of the INTEGRAL observations of NGC 6334 star formation region together with the model of magnetic field generation in supernova remnants ("Generation of Magnetic Fluctuations near a Shock Front in a Partialy Ionized medium",A.M. Bykov, I.N.Toptygin, Astronomy Letters, v. 31, no. 11, pp. 748-754, 2005).
