Role of stochastic scattering in Virgo A turbulent regions

Sydorenko M.V., Sushchov O.B.


Results of direct numerical modeling of charged particles scattering in Virgo A turbulent regions (radio lobes) are presented. Typical radio lobes regions, which nuclei of different chemical composition are supposed to come from, are estimated by applying numerical modeling of ultra-high energy cosmic rays scattering and acceleration with Fermi II mechanism in the turbulent regions inherent to Virgo A.

Keywords: turbulence; stochastic scattering; radio lobes
