Specific topics in each lecture

Sources of GeV Photons and the Fermi Results

1. GeV instrumentation and the GeV sky with the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (medium energy gamma-ray astronomy: brief history; Fermi LAT and GBM)

2. First Fermi Catalog of Gamma Ray Sources and the Fermi Pulsar Catalog (Survey of Fermi sources; quiet Sun and moon, normal and millisecond pulsars, 47 Tuc)

3.First Fermi AGN Catalog (BL Lacs, FSRQs)

4. Relativistic jet physics and blazars (blob vs. blast wave, gg opacity, SSC model, EC model, specific sources: 3C454.3, 3C 279)

5. g rays from cosmic rays in the Galaxy (Solar and lunar g rays, diffuse Galactic, cosmic ray electron/positron spectrum, no EGRET GeV excess, supernova remnants, incl. Cas A, RX J1713.7-2942, W44, W51C)

6. g rays from star-forming galaxies and clusters of galaxies, and the diffuse extragalactic g-ray background(LMC and SMC, clusters of galaxies, EBL)

7. Microquasars, radio galaxies, and the extragalactic background light (g-ray microquasars, including LS 5039, LS I+61 303; radio galaxies: NGC 1275, M87, Cen A; EBL: models)

8. Fermi Observations of Gamma Ray Bursts (BATSE and EGRET spark chamber and TASC observations of GRBs, GBM, Fermi observations of GRBs, LIV, EBL)

9. Fermi acceleration, ultra-high energy cosmic rays, and Fermi (pulsar wind nebulae—Crab)
