Shock Acceleration in Hot Spots

  • M. H. Pope (a1), Lewis Ball (a1) and D. B. Melrose (a1)

Abstract

A simple model is presented for electron acceleration in extragalactic radio sources with two hot spots. The effect of diffusive shock acceleration by multiple shocks is calculated numerically, with adiabatic and synchrotron losses included. It is found for the sources 3C 20 and 3C 268·4 that a consistent set of model parameters exists which reproduce the observations. The model fails to reproduce the observations for the source 3C 196.
