This paper provides a detailed description of the latest version of our model of the solar wind (SW) interaction with the local interstellar medium (LISM). This model has already been applied to the analysis of Lyα absorption spectra toward nearby stars and for analyses of Solar and Heliospheric Observatory/SWAN data. Katushkina et al. (this issue) used the model results to analyze IBEX-Lo data. At the same time, the details of this model have not yet been published. This is a three-dimensional… 

Secondary Interstellar Oxygen in the Heliosphere: Numerical Modeling and Comparison with IBEX-Lo Data

Quantitative analysis of the interstellar heavy (oxygen and neon) atom fluxes obtained by the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) suggests the existence of the secondary interstellar oxygen

Heliospheric energetic neutral atoms: Non-stationary modelling and comparison with IBEX-Hi data

The Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) has been measuring fluxes of the Energetic Neutral Atoms (ENAs) using the IBEX-Hi (0.3 -- 6 keV) instrument since 2008. We have developed a numerical

Energetic Neutral Atom Flux from the Inner Heliosheath and Its Connection to Termination Shock Properties

We present statistical comparisons between energetic neutral atom (ENA) fluxes obtained using a global simulation of the heliosphere and data collected by the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX)

On the problem of two-tail heliosphere/astrospheres

We consider the effect of the solar/stellar wind collimation towards the solar/stellar wind rotation axis in the heliosheath between the termination shock and the heliopause/astropause. The

Interstellar hydrogen fluxes measured by IBEX-Lo in 2009: numerical modeling and comparison with the data

In this paper, we perform numerical modeling of the interstellar hydrogen fluxes measured by IBEX-Lo during orbit 23 (spring 2009) using a state-of-the-art kinetic model of the interstellar neutral

Two-jet astrosphere model: effect of azimuthal magnetic field

Opher et al. (2015), Drake et al. (2015) have shown that the heliospheric magnetic field results in formation of two-jet structure of the solar wind flow in the inner heliosheath, i.e. in the

The Impact of Kinetic Neutrals on the Heliotail

The shape of the heliosphere is thought to resemble a long, comet tail, however, recently it has been suggested that the heliosphere is tailless with a two-lobe structure. The latter study was done

The Development of a Split-tail Heliosphere and the Role of Non-ideal Processes: A Comparison of the BU and Moscow Models

Global models of the heliosphere are critical tools used in the interpretation of heliospheric observations. There are several three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) heliospheric models that

A Three-dimensional Map of the Heliosphere from IBEX

The Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) mission has shown that variations in the energetic neutral atom (ENA) flux from the outer heliosphere are associated with the solar cycle and longer-term

A Predicted Small and Round Heliosphere

The shape of the solar wind bubble within the interstellar medium, the so-called heliosphere, has been explored over six decades. As the Sun moves through the surrounding partially-ionized medium,
