Study of High Energy Emission from Relativistic Jets with VERITAS.


Author list: Reshmi Mukherjee


VERITAS is an imaging atmospheric Cherenkov observatory located in southern Arizona. VERITAS consists of an array of four 12-m telescopes, and carries out a strong observing program for Galactic and extragalactic high energy sources at energies above 100 GeV. Observations of astrophysical objects in the TeV band are sensitive probes of highly energetic processes occurring in these sources. In this talk I will present recent results from VERITAS on active galaxies and Galactic gamma-ray binaries, and discuss the results in the context of particle acceleration in jets.
