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
A GeV source in the direction of Supernova Remnant CTB 37B
Supernova remnants (SNRs) are the most attractive candidates for the acceleration sites of Galactic cosmic rays. We report the detection of GeV $\gamma$-ray emission with the Pass 8 events recordedExpand
Energy Partition between Energetic Electrons and Turbulent Magnetic Field in Supernova Remnant RX J1713.7-3946
Current observations of supernova remnant (SNR) RX J1713.7-3946 favor the leptonic scenario for the TeV emission, where the radio to X-ray emission is produced via the synchrotron process and theExpand
The role of the diffusive protons in the gamma-ray emission of supernova remnant RX J1713.7$-$3946 --- a two-zone model
RX~J1713.7$-$3946 is a prototype in the $\gamma$-ray-bright supernova remnants (SNRs) and is in continuing debates on its hadronic versus leptonic origin of the $\gamma$-ray emission. We explore theExpand

AN ATTEMPT AT A UNIFIED MODEL FOR THE GAMMA-RAY EMISSION OF SUPERNOVA REMNANTS
Shocks of supernova remnants (SNRs) are important (and perhaps the dominant) agents for the production of the Galactic cosmic rays. Recent gamma-ray observations of several SNRs have made this caseExpand

The γ-ray emission produced by protons that escape from supernova remnant G349.7+0.2
G349.7+0.2 is an interacting supernova remnant (SNR) expanding in a dense medium. Recently, a very strong γ-ray source coincident with this SNR has been revealed by Fermi-LAT and H.E.S.S.Expand
Constraints on cosmic-ray efficiency in the supernova remnant RCW 86 using multi-wavelength observations
Context. Several young supernova remnants (SNRs) have recently been detected in the high-energy (HE; 0.1 100 GeV) gamma-ray domains. As exemplified by RX J1713.7−3946, the nature of this emission hasExpand
HESS J1640-465 -- a Gamma-ray emitting pulsar wind nebula ?
HESS J1640-465 is an extended TeV $\gamma$-ray source and its nature of being the shell of a supernova remnant (SNR) or a pulsar wind nebula (PWN) is still under debate. We reanalyze the GeVExpand
