A Self-Consistent Model for the Broad-band Spectrum of Sgr A East at the Galactic Center


Sgr A East is a very prominent elongated shell structure surrounding (though off-centered from) the Galactic nucleus. Its energetics (∼ 4 × 10 ergs), based on the power required to carve out the radio synchrotron remnant within the surrounding dense molecular cloud, appear to be extreme compared to the total energy (∼ 10 ergs) released in a typical… (More)
