Ladies and Gentlemen. Due to the coronavirus epidemic in Poland, the CTP PAS is operating in a limited way. In particular, until further notice the secretariat and the accountancy of the CTP PAS will be working only remotely. Contact with the administration is possible only by an e-mail. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Name Special CTP PAS Seminar
Title High energy emission from astrophysical jets

Accretion of matter onto a central object and bipolar ejection of collimated plasma from the inner regions of the accretion disc are very common phenomena in Astrophysics. Jets with different spatial scales (galactic and extragalactic) and speeds (relativistic and non relativistic) are sources of non-thermal emission produced by high-energy particles accelerated in situ.   I will discuss our recent results on particle acceleration in shocks in extragalactic and galactic jets. In the former case, we conclude that acceleration in the mildly relativistic shocks in the  jet lobes in radiogalaxies can accelerate Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays. In the later case, we show that protostellar jets can accelerate TeV electrons and protons and emit gamma rays.
