Analytic solution for nonlinear shock acceleration in the Bohm limit

  title={Analytic solution for nonlinear shock acceleration in the Bohm limit},
  author={Mikhail Malkov},
The selfconsistent steady state solution for a strong shock, significantly modified by accelerated particles is obtained on the level of a kinetic description, assuming Bohm-type diffusion. The original problem that is commonly formulated in terms of the diffusion-convection equation for the distribution function of energetic particles, coupled with the thermal plasma through the momentum flux continuity equation, is reduced to a nonlinear integral equation in one variable. The solution of this… CONTINUE READING
