Diffusive Shock Acceleration
Subject: Physics | Topics:

Primary purpose of this lecture is to present on Diffusive Shock Acceleration. Inhomogeneities of the magnetized plasma flow lead to energy changes of energetic charged particles due to electric fields. Fermi acceleration, sometimes referred to as diffusive shock acceleration (a subclass of Fermi acceleration), is the acceleration that charged particles undergo when being repeatedly reflected, usually by a magnetic mirror.
