Presentation of our Working Group

Our working group has been founded in 2008 between scientists working on Very High Energy (VHE) Gamma-Ray Astrophysics, Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Ray (UHECR) Physics and Neutrino Astrophysics. We are interested in models describing the emission of cosmic rays, gamma rays and neutrinos from Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN), their verification against existing data, and predictions for future experiments.

The principal questions we are interested in are:
Can we, based on current or planned experiments, confirm or rule out (classes of) AGN as sources of UHECR (and neutrinos) ?
What can we learn about emission processes from combining data of our fields and comparing them to model predictions ?

Our goals are:

You can find the proposals and activity reports of our group in the Links & Documents section (sorry, these documents are only in French).

Thanks to all participants of our two-day workshop on acceleration and emission processes on January 25th and 26th 2010 !
The presentations can be found here.

Our working group is open to any interested scientist. Should you be interested in our activities, do not hesitate to contact us !
