Description:Starburst regions in nearby and distant galaxies have a profound impact on our understanding of the early universe. The book dedscribes complex physial processes involved in the creation of stars and during their young lives. It illustrates how these processes reveal themselves from radion wavelengths to high energy X-rays and gamma -rays, with special reference towards high energy signatures. Several sections devoted to key analysis techniques demonstrate how modern research in this field is pursued.
