Abstract

The time-dependent distribution of relativistic electrons is very important to the discussion of light and the spectrum. This letter provides a general, time-dependent solution for the continuity equation of electron number density (CEEND). Several special solutions with the first Fermi acceleration and different injection patterns are obtained.
