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 ...
Particle diffusion and localized acceleration in inhomogeneous AGN jets. II. Stochastic variation
(Oxford Univ Press, 2016)
We study the stochastic variation of blazar emission under a 2D spatially resolved leptonic jet model we previously developed. Random events of particle acceleration and injection in small zones within the emission region ...
