The current decade is commencing new frontiers in high-energy astrophysics. After the X-ray satellites within the 1980's, together with Einstein, Tenma, EXOSAT and Ginga, numerous satellites are, or will quickly be, at the same time in orbit supplying brilliant advances in X-ray imaging at low energies (ROSATj Yohkoh) in addition to at excessive energies (GRANAT), in spectroscopy with elevated bandwidth (ASCAj SAX), and in timing (XTE). whereas those satellites let us learn atomic radiation from sizzling plasmas or lively electrons, different satellites learn nuclear radiation at gamma-ray energies (CGRO) linked to radioactivity or spallation reactions. those experiments convey that the total universe is emitting radiation at excessive energies, for that reason we name it the "hot universe. " the recent universe, preferentially emitting X- and gamma-rays, offers us with many surprises and lots more and plenty info. A symposium "The sizzling Universe" was once held at the side of the XXIIIrd basic meeting of the overseas Astronomical Union, at Kyoto on August 26-30 in 1997. The lawsuits are equipped as follows. man made view of "the sizzling universe" is mentioned in part 1, "Plasma and clean Nucleosynthesis Phenomena". well timed discussions at the procedure for destiny missions "Future house application" are present in part 2. Then the contents are divided into significant matters: the compact gadgets and skinny sizzling diffuse plasmas. part three is dedicated to the class of compact items inclusive of white dwarfs, neutron stars, and gravitationally collapsed gadgets: stellar mass black holes or lively galactic nuclei.

If the magnetic field configuration has a neutral point (or an array of neutral points) in it, the stressed magnetic fluxes with the loaded mass and helicity can be transferred to other regions of lower stress , due to reconnections in the neutral point region. and can reduce the accumulated magnetic stress energy in the system. 21 K Koyama et al. ), The Hot Universe, 21-24. © 1998IAU. 22 Y.

1997a). Here we explore several models for the light curve. 1. The dashed line in Figure 2a shows the X-rays emerged from the reverse shocked ejecta of original 3Hl1. 0. The X-ray flare has been predicted to occur around day 500 when the reverse shock hits the density jump at the H/He interface. 2. The solid line in Figure 2 also shows the X-rays from the reverse shocked ejecta, where the density profile is modified as shown by the dashed line in Figure 2. 5. The X-ray luminosity increases more gradually because the reverse shock arrives at the interface as early as day 300 - 400 and propagates against the power-law density profile rather than the jump.

Gamma-ray Observations from ORION COMPTEL has detected excessive gamma-ray emission from the Orion complex in the 3 to 7 MeV gamma-ray band [7]. This excess has been tentatively identified with nuclear interaction lines from excited Carbon and Oxygen nuclei.
