The cosmic-ray streaming instability creates strong magnetohydrodynamic turbulence in the precursor of a SN shock. The level of turbulence determines the maximum energy of cosmic-ray particles accelerated by the diffusive shock acceleration mechanism. The present consideration continues our work Ptuskin & Zirakashvili (2003). It is assumed that the… (More)
