Emission mechanisms of the shell-type supernova remnant (SNR) RX J1713.7-3946 are studied with multi-wavelength observational data from radio, X-ray, GeV $\gamma$-ray to TeV $\gamma$-ray band. A Markov Chain Monte Carlo method is employed to explore the high-dimensional model parameter space systematically. Three scenarios for the $\gamma$-ray emission are investigated: the leptonic, the hadronic and a hybrid one. Thermal emission from the background plasma is also included to constrain the gas… Expand

MODELING THE MULTIWAVELENGTH EMISSION FROM G73.9+0.9: GAMMA RAYS FROM AN SNR–MC INTERACTION
G73.9+0.9 has been classified as a probable shell-type supernova remnant, though it has also been suggested that it could have a pulsar wind nebula (PWN). Here, a broadband model of the non-thermalExpand
