Non-thermal emission from star-forming galaxies

Roth, Matt


Star-forming galaxies are a copious source of non-thermal radiation. This emission spans 20 orders of magnitude in photon energy, from ultrahigh energy gamma-rays at PeV energies to radio emission at mueV energies. Most of this emission is produced by radiative losses of charged relativistic particles, or cosmic rays, which were accel- erated in the shock waves of supernova remnants, amongst other sources. Cosmic rays are dynamically important for galaxy evolution in that they provide an impor-...[Show more]
