This book is an introduction to "multi-messenger" astrophysics. It covers the many different aspects connecting particle physics with astrophysics and cosmology and introduces astrophysics using numerous experimental findings recently obtained through the study of high-energy particles.

Taking a systematic approach, it comprehensively presents experimental aspects from the most advanced laboratories and detectors, as well as the theoretical background. The book is aimed at graduate students and post-graduate researchers with a basic understanding of particle and nuclear physics. It will also be of interest to particle physicists working in accelerator/collider physics who are keen to understand the mechanisms of the largest accelerators in the Universe.

The book draws on the extensive lecturing experience of Professor Maurizio Spurio from the University of Bologna.

Maurizio Spurio is a Professor of Physics at the University of Bologna where he teaches Particle and Astroparticle physics. With his research he is involved in experimental physics, with particular interest in high-energy physics without particle accelerators and astroparticle physics.He was member of the MACRO experiment at Gran Sasso...

Editorial Reviews

"Author Spurio has based this book on a lecturecourse given at the University of Bologna on astroparticle physics andacknowledges significant input from colleagues and students. It is aimed at PhDstudents, postdocs, and particle physicists who have developed an interest inthe Universe . . Particles and Astrophysics is an enormously likeable book." (VirginiaTrimble, The Observatory, Vol. 135 (1245), April, 2015)"The book on 'Particles and Astrophysics' by Maurizio Spurio is based on a successful series of lectures on Astroparticle Physics given for many years by the author at the University of Bologna. . The presentation is exhaustive but at the same time easy to follow for non-experts. Particularly recommended not only for researchers in the field, but for university students as well." (V. Flaminio, Il Nuovo Saggiatore,, Vol. 31 (1-2), 2015)"The author's comprehensive and learned compilation offers numerous insights and connections into particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology. . It is well suited for university teaching and can be recommended to graduate and postgraduate students." (Johannes Viktor Feitzinger, zbMATH 1315.85001, 2015)
