An Introduction to Cosmic Rays and Gamma-Ray Bursts
by A. De Rujula
Publisher: arXiv 2007
Number of pages: 37
The author reviews the subjects of non-solar cosmic rays (CRs) and long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). This is a version of an introductory talk to high-energy physicists. Nothing besides the standard model is required to understand CRs of any energy.

In these lecture notes, the author reviews some recent developments on the relation between the macroscopic entropy of four-dimensional BPS black holes and the microscopic counting of states, beyond the thermodynamical, large charge limit.

This book describes the methods and results of modern astrophysical phenomenology and modelling for advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students. It is meant to be explanatory and expository, rather than complete or definitive.

Gravitational-wave experiments with interferometers and with resonant masses can search for stochastic backgrounds of gravitational waves of cosmological origin. We review both experimental and theoretical aspects of the search for these backgrounds.
