  • The analytical theory of diffusive cosmic-ray acceleration at parallel stationary shock waves with magnetostatic turbulence is generalized to arbitrary shock speeds , including, in particular, relativistic speeds. This is achieved by applying the diffusion approximation to the relevant Fokker–Planck particle transport equation formulated in the mixed comoving coordinate system. In this coordinate system, the particle's momentum coordinates p and are taken in the rest frame of the streaming… CONTINUE READING
