Cosmic Rays in Galactic and Extragalactic Magnetic Fields

Textbook Title: Cosmic Rays in Galactic and Extragalactic Magnetic Fields

Textbook Description:
This free online etextbook reviews the sources of cosmic rays, their composition and spectra as well as their propagation in the galactic and extragalactic magnetic fields, both regular and fluctuating. In the textbook special attention is paid to the recent results of the X-ray and gamma-ray observations that shed light on the origin of the galactic cosmic rays and the challenging results of Pierre Auger Observatory on the ultra high energy cosmic rays.
