On ``box'' models of shock acceleration and electron synchrotron spectra.

DRURY L.O'C., DUFFY P., EICHLER D. and MASTICHIADIS A.

Abstract (from CDS):

The recent detection of high energy γ-rays coming from supernova remnants and active galactic nuclei has revived interest in the diffusive shock acceleration of electrons. In the present paper we examine the basis of the so-called ``box'' model for particle acceleration and present a more physical version of it. Using this we determine simple criteria for the conditions under which ``pile-ups'' can occur in shock accelerated electron spectra subject to synchrotron or inverse Compton losses (the latter in the Thompson limit). An extension to include nonlinear effects is proposed.
