The spectral index can be modified over time by various processes (e.g., wave‐particle interaction) that can move the plasma toward or away from the thermal equilibrium. This population is predominantly controlled by the upstream solar wind conditions, including the Cited by: We have applied a modified total variation diminishing (TVD) method within the framework of a finite difference method for solving a transport equation for cosmic rays in an irregular magnetic field. We employ Roe's superbee scheme to control the numerical Cited by:

A typical scenario for such a model is high-energy cosmic-ray feedback on the background plasma upstream of nonrelativistic SNR shocks. The model treats cosmic rays in a kinetic PIC way, while the ions and electrons of the thermal plasma are described through MHD equations [77], [78], [79].Author: Martin Pohl, Masahiro Hoshino, Jacek Niemiec.

Particle acceleration and turbulence at such shocks become possible and important.
