  1. Focus Point on Modern Astronomy: Selected Issues in Nuclear and High Energy Astrophysics

Abstract.

This paper is an introduction to neutrino astronomy, addressed to astronomers and written by astroparticle physicists. While the focus is on achievements and goals of neutrino astronomy, rather than those of particle physics, we will introduce the particle physics concepts needed to appreciate those aspects that depend on the peculiarity of the neutrinos. The material is selected --i.e., not all achievements are reviewed-- and furthermore it is kept to an introductory level, but efforts are made to highlight current research issues.
