A current-driven instability in parallel, relativistic shocks

Abstract:

Recently, Bell (2004 Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc. 353 550) has reanalysed the problem of wave excitation by cosmic rays propagating in the pre-cursor region of a supernova remnant shock front. He pointed out a strong, non-resonant, current-driven instability that had been overlooked in the kinetic treatments by Achterberg (1983 Astron. Astrophys. 119 274) and McKenzie and Völk (1982 Astron. Astrophys. 116 191), and suggested that it is responsible for substantial amplification of the ambient mag...
