  • Recent studies have indicated that cosmic ray acceleration by a rst-order Fermi process in magnetic reconnection current sheets can be ecient enough in the surrounds of compact sources. In this work, we discuss this acceleration mechanism operating in the core region of galactic black hole binaries (or microquasars) and show the conditions under which this can be more ecient than shock acceleration. In addition, we compare the corresponding acceleration rate with the relevant radiative loss… CONTINUE READING
