  • The evolution of a dilute electron-positron fireball is calc ulated in the regime of strong magnetization and very high compactness (l ∼ 10 3 - 10 8 ). Heating is applied at a low effective temperature (< 25 keV), and the fireball is allowed to expand, so that the formation of a black -body spectral distribution is inhibited by pair annihilation. The diffusion equation for Compton scattering is coupled to a single-temperature pair gas and an exact (trans-relativistic) cyclo-synchrotron photon… CONTINUE READING
