Time-dependent particle acceleration in supernova remnants in different environments

Abstract:

We simulate time-dependent particle acceleration in the blast wave of a young supernova remnant (SNR), using a Monte Carlo approach for the diffusion and acceleration of the particles, coupled to a magnetohydrodynamics code. We calculate the distribution function of the cosmic rays concurrently with the hydrodynamic evolution of the SNR, and compare the results with those obtained using simple steady-state models. The surrounding medium into which the SNR evolves turns out to be of great infl...
