Title: Nature's Extreme Accelerators Exploring the Nonthermal Universe with High Energy Gamma Rays.
Abstract:  
Cosmic gamma rays carry key information about high energy phenomena in variety of astrophysical environments. Being a part of modern astrophysics and astroparticle physics, gamma-ray astronomy is a discipline in its own right. It addresses an impressively broad rang of topics related to the nonthermal Universe - acceleration, propagation, and radiation of relativistic particles on all astronomical scales: from compact objects like pulsars (neutron stars) and microquasars (accreting black holes) to giant radiogalaxies and galaxy clusters. I will briefly describe the status and discuss the objectives of the field with a emphasis on three major topics: Origin of Cosmic Rays, Physics and Astrophysics of relativistic outflows, and cosmological issues related to the intergalactic radiation and magnetic fields.

Title: Fast radio bursts pdf
Abstract:  
We discuss recent results obtained in the study of Fast Radio Bursts - new phenomenon which is likely to have astrophysical origin. In particular, the recent claim in identification of the host galaxy of FRB 150418 by Keane et al. (2016) and its criticism by Williams and Berger (2016) will be reviewed.
