Particle acceleration in cosmic plasmas : Newark, De., 1991
Abstract
The present volume on particle acceleration in cosmic plasmas discusses transport theory, particle acceleration in the sun, heliosphere, and galaxy, particle acceleration at nonrelativistic shocks, and stochastic particle acceleration. Attention is given to particle acceleration in relativistic flows and shocks, simulations, composition and sources of highenergy cosmic rays, electron acceleration, and observation priorities and perspectives. Topics addressed include particle acceleration in the magnetosphere, particle transport from a turbulence perspective, numerical simulations of timedependent cosmic ray mediated shocks, and solar flare plasma. Also discussed are relativistic shock waves and the excitation of plerions, ion acceleration at collisionless shock interactions, ultrahighenergy cosmic rays from Fanaroff Riley, and constraints on electron acceleration in the Crab Nebula.
