The 4th X-ray Astronomy School

The 4th X-ray Astronomy School will be held in Cambridge, MA on August 14-19, 2005. See the web page for more information:

With the launch of Chandra and XMM-Newton, X-ray astronomy is becoming increasingly important for research into many topics in astrophysics. The X-ray astronomy school is intended for graduate students and recent post-docs who want to understand the intricacies of X-ray astroonomy. The lectures will cover the characteristics of X-ray detectors with particular emphasis on implications for correct interpretation of the data. They will also cover the basic physics related to the X-ray emission processes and a review of science addressed in X-ray astronomy (i.e., clusters of galaxies, AGN, CVs, pulsars, X-ray binaries, supernova remnants, stars).
