Title: Analysis and interpretation of diffuse x-ray emission using data from the Einstein satellite. Final Technical Report

Abstract

An ambitious program to create a powerful and accessible archive of the HEAO{sup {minus}2} Imaging Proportional Counter (IPC) database was outlined. The scientific utility of that database for studies of diffuse x ray emissions was explored. Technical and scientific accomplishments are reviewed. Three papers were presented which have major new scientific findings relevant to the global structure of the interstellar medium and the origin of the cosmic x ray background. An all-sky map of diffuse x ray emission was constructed.
