Cosmic Rays in Star-Forming Environments

  author={Diego F. Torres and O. Reimer},
Well, someone can decide by themselves what they want to do and need to do but sometimes, that kind of person will need some cosmic rays in star forming environments references. People with open minded will always try to seek for the new things and information from many sources. On the contrary, people with closed mind will always think that they can do it by their principals. So, what kind of person are you? 

Cosmic rays across the star-forming galaxy sequence – I. Cosmic ray pressures and calorimetry

In the Milky Way, cosmic rays (CRs) are dynamically important in the interstellar medium, contribute to hydrostatic balance, and may help regulate star formation. However, we know far less about the

On the past activity of Sgr A*

Abstract Recent X-ray emission events in the Galactic center would be expected to generate an X-ray reflection response within the surrounding clouds of the central molecular zone, in the Galactic

The γ-ray afterglows of tidal disruption events

This work investigates the observational signatures resulting from the collision between an UDS and an MC, which is likely to happen hundreds of years after a TDE, and focuses on γ-ray emission, which comes from the encounter of shock-accelerated cosmic rays with background protons and is not subject to extinction.

Cosmic ray transport in starburst galaxies

Starburst galaxies are efficient γ-ray producers, because their high supernova rates generate copious cosmic ray (CR) protons, and their high gas densities act as thick targets off which these

The plasma physics of cosmic rays in star-forming regions

It is largely accepted that Galactic cosmic rays, which pervade the interstellar medium, originate by means of shock waves in supernova remnants. Cosmic rays activate the rich chemistry that is

High-energy neutrinos and gamma rays from winds and tori in active galactic nuclei

Powerful winds with wide opening angles, likely driven by accretion disks around black holes (BHs), are observed in the majority of active galactic nuclei (AGN) and can play a crucial role in AGN and

Can a cosmic ray carrot explain the ionization level in diffuse molecular clouds?

Low energy cosmic rays are the major ionization agents of molecular clouds. However, it has been shown that, if the cosmic ray spectrum measured by Voyager 1 is representative of the whole Galaxy,

Runaway stars as cosmic ray injectors inside molecular clouds

Giant molecular clouds (GMCs) are a new population of gamma-ray sources, being the target of cosmic rays (CRs) – locally accelerated or not –. These clouds host very young stellar clusters where


Despite strong physical reasons that they should exist and decades of searching, jets from the Galactic center black hole, Sgr A*, have not yet been convincingly detected. Based on high-resolution

Cosmic-ray propagation at small scale: a support for protostellar disc formation

As long as magnetic fields remain frozen into the gas, the magnetic braking prevents the formation of protostellar discs. This condition is subordinate to the ionisation fraction characterising the
