a young area of research aiming to
understand astrophysical phenomena involving energetic particles.
Particles may be accelerated at the shock fronts
remnants to very high energies, escape, propagate through the
Galaxy, and be observable at earth as
The spectrum of these cosmic
particles show anomalies that suggest
unconventional interpretations, such as signatures
of dark matter.
These and other questions are being investigated by the research group
Theoretical Astroparticle Physics at Potsdam University.
