A DETAILED STUDY OF THE MOLECULAR AND ATOMIC GAS TOWARD THE gamma-RAY SUPERNOVA REMNANT RX J1713.7-3946: SPATIAL TeV gamma-RAY AND INTERSTELLAR MEDIUM GAS CORRESPONDENCE

Description

RX J1713.7−3946 is the most remarkable TeV γ -ray supernova remnant (SNR) that emits γ -rays in the highest energy range. We have made a new combined analysis of CO and H i in the SNR and derived the total protons in the interstellar medium (ISM). We have found that the inclusion of the H i gas provides a significantly better spatial match between the TeV γ -rays and ISM protons than the H2 gas alone. In particular, the southeastern rim of the γ -ray shell has a counterpart only in the H i. The...[Show more]
