Paper Abstract

The distinguishing of point-like man made gamma ray sources from point like astrophysical or cosmological sources can be achieved by analyzing the line structure of the gamma ray spectrum in the 0.5 - 10 MeV energy range. A special computer program has been developed for this analysis and tested in Monte Carlo simulations. An application of this method has been made for burster manifestations of superconducting cosmic strings using the High Resolution Gamma Ray Telescope developed by the UTD/UCLA collaboration.
