Non-thermal phenomena in colliding galaxy clusters - NtGC 2010
Start date: 15 Nov 2010
Address: La maison du Séminaire, Nice, France
The workshop will address a wide range of phenomena related to non-thermal particles and magnetic fields in and around galaxy clusters. These sites provide a unique laboratory for studying the physics of dilute plasmas. Recent years have seen rapid progress in this field, as radio, X-ray and gamma-ray telescopes are providing unprecedented new details and constraints on the properties of the intracluster relativistic plasma and its interplay with the thermal medium.
