Observational Aspects Of Core Collapse Supernovae
The discovery of several bright supernovae (SNe) in recent years has evoked a great deal of interest in these objects. The study of these objects are of importance not only as probes to the end stages of stellar evolution, ...
Origin Of The Extragalactic Gamma-Ray Background
It is evident that the origin of EGRB is not well established. In this thesis I examine the unresolved discrete origin of EGRB. The contribution from normal galaxies, starburst galaxies and AGNs to the EGRB is examined. ...
Studies Of Diffuse Ultraviolet Radiation
Ever since the first observations of diffuse ultraviolet radiation by Hayakawa et al. (1969) and Lillie & Witt (1976), there has been an effort to understand its distribution and its origin. Unfortunately, because of the ...
Investigating Systematics In The Cosmological Data And Possible Departures From Cosmological Principle
This thesis contributes to the field of dark energy and observational cosmology. We have investigated possible direction dependent systematic signal and non-Gaussian features in the supernovae (SNe) Type Ia data. To detect ...
