A&a Manuscript No. Cyclo-synchrotron Emission and Comptonization in Optically Thin Hot Accretion Flows

Abstract

Soft cyclo-synchrotron photons produced by thermal electrons moving in a magnetic eld can be subsequently Comptonized to produce hard X-ray and -ray emission. An accurate determination of the amount of soft cyclo-synchrotron photons produced from such plasmas is clearly necessary. We present the complete solution to the cyclo-synchrotron problem. We… (More)
