Description

The mechanism of non-thermal particle acceleration in turbulent plasma
is the magnetic reconnection that occurs when plasmoids interact with others. In this talk, I will discuss the new results from Particle In Cell (PIC) simulations and the implications for the astrophysical plasma. In particular, the non-thermal particle population and electron temperature in relativistic jets.
