Call for Papers for Special Issue: Particle Acceleration and Transport : from the Sun to Extragalactic Sources
• 大类 : 地学天文 - 4区
• 小类 : 天文与天体物理 - 4区
This Special issue is dedicated to recent progress in the field of particle acceleration and transport in different astrophysical environments, such as the Sun, the heliosphere, galactic sources, and extragalactic sources. The aim is to collect both original research papers and review papers in the fields of cosmic ray physics, plasma turbulence, particle acceleration and transport processes, in order to stimulate cross-fertilization and to exchange scientific information among different areas.
The availability of large data-sets from new instrumentation and recent progress from theoretical and numerical studies provide the opportunity to advance the models and possibly to answer some of the basic unresolved issues.
For this purpose, all contributions presenting recent, pioneering observations, theories, and models that try to explain and describe processes of particle acceleration and transport are very welcome.
The hot topics covered by this SI are: i) observations of energetic particles in the solar, heliospheric, galactic and extragalactic environments; ii) properties of cosmic ray transport and acceleration from in-situ and remote observations; iii) solar flares, Crab flares, flaring phenomena in astrophysics; iv) shock acceleration: problems and advances; v) particle acceleration in magnetic reconnection, including the relativistic regimes; vi) particle acceleration in accretion flows and relativistic jets; vii) transport and acceleration in non-linear regimes; viii) magnetic turbulence in astrophysical plasmas: properties from large to small scales and effects on particle transport; ix) theoretical models and numerical simulations of particle transport and acceleration.
We will be accepting submissions from January 2020 until July 2020. Authors must follow New Astronomy’s Guide for Authors for formatting requirements (https://www.elsevier.com/journals/new-astronomy/1384-1076/guide-for-authors). To submit a paper, the author(s) must select “VSI: Particle Acceleration” as the special issue title. The articles will follow a standard peer review process.
