Astroparticle Physics by Claus Grupen
After a historical introduction the basics of elementary particles, Astroparticlee particle interactions and the relevant detection techniques, while modern aspects of astroparticle physics are described in a chapter on cosmology.
Provides an orientation in the field of astroparticle physics that many beginners might seek and appreciate because the underlying physics fundamentals are presented with little mathematics, and the results are illustrated by many diagrams. Readers have a chance to enter this field of astronomy with a book that closes the gap between expert and popular level.

Table of contents Historical Introduction. Review Text From the reviews: Grupen presents an introduction and overview of the main ideas and concepts of this rapidly growing field of research. Written in a very clear and readable fashion it is accessible to a broad audience.
Grupen’s book is really a must-have for anyone looking for a good starting point in The format of the book, with the wide margin for keywords and figures, the extensive glossary, and the problems for each section with detailed solutionsmake it very readable and provide a good starting point for undergraduate and postgraduate students interested in astroparticle physics.
Included are a mathematical appendix and an appendix on the results from statistical physics necessary to understand the thermodynamics of the early universe. These additions make the book a good introduction to this rapidly moving subject. Each chapter offers problems with solutions, and a page comprehensive index and references are included.
A very useful book for the right reader. Ogilvie, CHOICE, March, “Claus Grupen provides a comprehensive and up-to-date introduction to the main ideas and terminology of the study of elementary particles originating from astrophysical objects.
Astroparticle Physics : Claus Grupen :
The style and presentation of the material make the book accessible to a broad audience A good selection of simple exercises with solution increases its phsics value and makes it suitable as a textbook for an undergraduate course. Non-specialists who want to follow the main issues of current research in the field The index is magnificent and there is a good, relevant, mathematical appendix plus a glossary phyxics terms which is actually useful. Best of all, there are worthwhile problems at the end of each chapter, complete with full solutions at the end of the book.
