Invited/Solicited talk in mini-symposium Astroparticle


Prof. Jim Hinton (Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik, Heidelberg)


Relativistic outflows are efficient particle accelerators, and TeV-PeV photons provide an extremely effective probe of these systems. I will discuss the latest observational results related to Galactic systems with relativistic outflows and associated gamma-ray emission, including pulsar wind nebulae and microquasars, and large-scale emission associated to particles that have escaped from such systems. Finally I will discuss the prospects for understanding the lifecycles and populations of these systems with the help of the new generation of ground-based gamma-ray instruments.
