The Quasar 1317+520: A Laboratory for Particle Acceleration
Multiwaveband images of extended jets in quasars reveal that in some locations electrons reach energies of at least 100 TeV, while in others the particle acceleration is less efficient. The jet of
Time-dependent galactic winds
Context. Cosmic rays (CRs) are transported out of the galaxy by diffusion and advection due to streaming along magnetic field lines and resonant scattering off self-excited magnetohydrodynamic (MHD)
Extreme fluctuations of current in the symmetric simple exclusion process: a non-stationary setting
We use the macroscopic fluctuation theory (MFT) to evaluate the probability distribution of extreme values of integrated current J at a specified time t = T in the symmetric simple exclusion process
Kelvin-Helmholtz instabilities with Godunov smoothed particle hydrodynamics
TLDR
The momentum equation of the Godunov SPH has much better linear consistency, so the unphysical force is greatly reduced compared to the standard SPH in a high density contrast.
The Jet of the Quasar 3 C 273
New observations of the jet in 3C 273 support and refine our earlier interpretation that (i) the mapped jet is 10 yr old and grows at 0.6 to 0.75 times the speed of light, at an average angle θ of
Two-fluid dynamics in clusters of galaxies
We develop a theoretical formulation for the large-scale dynamics of galaxy clusters involving two spherical 'isothermal fluids' coupled by their mutual gravity and derive asymptotic similarity
Optodynamic characterization of a laser cleaning process
Laser cleaning is an optodynamic process in which the optically induced removal of a liquid or a solid from a substrate is accompanied by a detectable acoustic signal. In our experiments we used both
The X-ray emission from shock cooling zones in O star winds.
A semi-empirical model is developed for the X-ray emission from O star winds, and used to analyze recent ROSAT PSPC spectra. The X-rays are assumed to originate from cool- ing zones behind shock
Spectral line interferometry of weak Mach reflection in an iodine vapour
Information regarding weak Mach reflection obtained from flow visualization using normal interferometric techniques is limited in resolution by the small fringe shifts produced by the density changes
