By G. K. Skinner (auth.), L. Bassani, G. Di Cocco (eds.)

An nearly whole number of the papers given on the foreign Workshop on Imaging in excessive strength Astronomy (Anacapri, Italy, 1994). those complaints, which pay attention to imaging above 10 keV, signify the cutting-edge within the box, because of the luck of many missions (I.C. Granat and CGRO) wearing detectors for top power astronomy with imaging services. the most issues of the booklet are Bragg concentrators, coded mask-modulation collimators, double Compton telescopes, the occultation strategy, monitoring chambers, and new experimental recommendations. The publication additionally comprises a few papers facing photo reconstruction and processing, with an emphasis at the above techniques.
