Young Supernova Remnants: Eleventh Astrophysics Conference, College Park, Maryland 16-18 October 2000

Overview

This conference is dedicated to supernova remnants in their earliest phase of evolution. Its main goals are to provide an observational overview, particularly in light of recent advances, and then to set the observations in context by highlighting a number of physical processes that are important in young supernova remnants and also by examining a few specific remnant details.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The proceedings from the October 2000 conference in College Park, Maryland center on the advent of the new X-ray observatories Chandra and XMM-Newton, combining X-ray imagery and spectroscopy of young supernova remnants from them with work done from Hubble and ground- based observatories. Approximately 70 papers address topics like SNe and SNR, Young SNR, the Crab and related remnants, cosmic ray acceleration and pulsars, specific examples, and hypernovae. Annotation c.
