Neutrinos and the Stars
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 83

Description:
The role of neutrinos in stars is introduced for students with little prior astrophysical exposure. We begin with neutrinos as an energy-loss channel in ordinary stars and conversely, how stars provide information on neutrinos and possible other low-mass particles.

Book cover: Cosmic Rays and the Search for a Lorentz Invariance ViolationCosmic Rays and the Search for a Lorentz Invariance Violation
by - arXiv
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).
