Multi-wavelength studies of interstellar shocks

Abstract content

Shocks of stellar winds and supernova remnants (SNRs) can accelerate particles to energies of 100 TeV or higher and are thus believed to be sources of Galactic cosmic rays. Multi-frequency studies of SNRs and superbubbles from radio to X-rays help to understand the propagation of shock waves and their interaction with the ambient medium, while combining the study of interstellar shocks with that of GeV to TeV sources will improve our knowledge of the physics of interstellar shocks, the nature of the gamma-ray sources, and the origin of Galactic cosmic rays. I will give an overview of the studies of SNRs and superbubbles, present recent results, and discuss the implications for their TeV emission.
