2013 arXiv   pre-print
The new evolutionary code Pegase.3 is used for the spectral synthesis of continuous optical-Spitzer-Herschel-submm spectral energy distributions (SEDs) of two z=3.8 radio galaxies 4C 41.17 and TN J2007  ...  The spectral synthesis used to fit the data is based on a variety of template libraries including instantaneous starbursts and evolutionary scenarios designed to fit the SEDs of local Hubble-type galaxies  ...  The most robust determinations from our fitting analysis are the relative ages and total stellar mass of each best fit scenario.  ...

Synchrotron radiation and absence of linear polarization in the colliding wind binary WR 146

C. A. Hales, P. Benaglia, S. del Palacio, G. E. Romero, B. S. Koribalski
2017 Astronomy and Astrophysics  
In order for this scenario to satisfy the required non-thermal energy budget, we find through numerical modeling that the strength of the magnetic field in the WCR must be as high as ~150 mG.  ...  We therefore favor a scenario where particles are accelerated through DSA and the depolarization is produced by mechanisms other than a large ratio between random to regular magnetic fields.  ...  In any case, the high-energy electrons are expected to obtain a power-law distribution in energy with a spectral index p ∼ 2.  ...

2020 arXiv   pre-print
Furthermore, the model predicts characteristic spectral features and evolution, which are well in line with those of AT2018cow and iPTF14hls.  ...  In the wind-driven model, we assume that a continuous outflow like a stellar wind is injected from a central system.  ...  Also, spectral synthesis simulations are required to address further details of the spectral evolution. We plan to tackle these issues in our future work.  ...
