The efficiency of diffusive shock acceler- ation increases rapidly with the ratio of the shock velocity to the initial sound speed, a quantity known as the Mach number. Although most of the energy of the cosmic structure formation is dissipated in the cen- ters of galaxy clusters, the shock waves in the outskirts and especially the accretion shocks have much higher Mach numbers and there- fore should be more efficient particle accel- erators, as can be seen in the figure ( 2 ). Electrons, which can be accelerated to energies of 10 4 to 10 5 times their rest mass, produce radio emission due to their gyro- motion in intergalactic magnetic fields. Such radio emission in galaxy clusters has been observed since the 1970s ( 3 ) and named cluster radio relics. However, only recently has the association with cluster merger shock waves been recognized ( 4 ). Bagchi et al. have found a pair of giant radio structures and propose that the double relic in galaxy Abell 3376 may be emission from the accretion shock of the cluster. This dual radio morphology may be caused by the stronger matter flow onto the cluster along an embedding galaxy filament. If this inter- pretation is correct, it would be a remarkable finding, because it would imply the presence of magnetic fields in the infalling gas, whereas magnetic fields have so far only been detected within galaxy clusters. Further- more, we would have the first observational identification of an accretion shock wave.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
