The spectral energy distribution from the X-ray to the very high energy regime (>100 GeV) has been investigated for the γ-ray binary system PSR B1259–63/SS 2883 as a function of the orbital phase within the framework of a simple model of a pulsar wind nebula. The emission model is based on the synchrotron radiation process for the X-ray regime and the inverse Compton scattering process boosting stellar photons from the Be star companion to the very high energy (100 GeV-TeV) regime. With this… Expand
