Cosmic Rays and the Search for a Lorentz Invariance Violation
by Wolfgang Bietenholz
Publisher: arXiv 2008
Number of pages: 81
This is an introductory review about the on-going search for a signal of Lorentz Invariance Violation (LIV) in cosmic rays. The author first summarizes basic aspects of cosmic rays, focusing on rays of ultra high energy (UHECRs).

These are the notes for an introductory graduate course. They are meant to be a 'primer' for students embarking on a Ph.D. in astronomy. The level is somewhat shallower than standard textbook courses, but quite a broad range of material is covered.

This is a set of lectures presented at the Theoretical Advanced Study Institute 2009. I provide an introduction to experiments designed to detect WIMP dark matter directly, focusing on building intuitive understanding of the potential WIMP signals.

Supernova remnants are beautiful astronomical objects that are also of high scientific interest, because they provide insights into supernova explosion mechanisms, and because they are the likely sources of Galactic cosmic rays.

The mechanisms which give rise to Hawking radiation are revealed by analyzing pair production. Three problems are considered: pair production in an external electric field, thermalization of a uniformly accelerated detector and accelerated mirrors.
