Recent near-IR (NIR) and X-ray observations of Sagittarius A*’s spectrum have yielded several strong constraints on the transient energization mechanism, justifying a re-examination of the stochastic acceleration model proposed previously for these events. We here demonstrate that the new results are fully consistent with the acceleration of electrons via… CONTINUE READING
