An overview of the high-energy Universe, and the study of cosmic rays and astrophysical neutrinos. Covers selected material, including the acceleration, propagation and interactions of relativistic particles, non-thermal emission processes (radio, X-rays and gamma-rays), and the astrophysics of extreme objects (black holes, neutron stars, supernova remnants and active galaxies). Observational techniques, analysis and instrumentation will also be discussed.
