Hydrodynamics and high-energy physics of Wolf-Rayet colliding winds

  • Vladimir V. Usov (a1)

Abstract

The stellar winds flowing out of the components of WR+OB binaries can collide and shock waves are formed. Stellar wind collision, particle acceleration by the shocks and generation of X-ray, γ-ray, radio and IR emission in WR+OB binaries are discussed.
