Relativistic shocks in a gas of interacting particles and radiation

Релятивистские ударные волны в газе взаимодействующих частиц и излучения

Summary

Results are presented from a theoretical study of relativistic shocks in a medium consisting of a mixture of photons, electrons and protons. The photon-to-baryon ratio is taken as a free parameter. Planar flow is considered and self-gravity is neglected.

Riassunto

Sono presentati i risultati di uno studio teorico sulle onde d'urto relativistiche in una miscela di fotoni, elettroni e protoni. Il rapporto fotoni/barioni è un parametro libero. Si considerano moti piani e si trascura l'autogravità dell'onda.

Резюме

Предлагаются результаты теоретического исследования релятивистских ударны волн в среде, состоящей из смеси фотонов, электронов и протонов. Отношение фотонов к барионам рассматривается как свободный параметр. Иссле дуются плоские течения и пренебрегается автогравитацией.
