Probing acceleration and turbulence at relativistic shocks in blazar jets
(Oxford Univ Press, 2017)
Diffusive shock acceleration (DSA) at relativistic shocks is widely thought to be an important acceleration mechanism in various astrophysical jet sources, including radio-loud active galactic nuclei such as blazars. Such ...
Energy loss in intergalactic pair beams: particle-in-cell simulation
(EDP Sciences, 2016)
Aims. The change in the distribution function of electron-positron pair beams determines whether GeV photons can be produced as secondary radiation from TeV photons. We will discuss the instabilities driven by pair ...
