Blast waves with cosmic rays — application to supernova remnants

Abstract: Blast waves appear in many astrophysical phenomena such as supernovae. In this talk I will discuss the well known Sedov solution for the evolution of supernova remnants in adiabatic i.e. energy conserving phase, and extend the analysis to blast waves with cosmic rays i.e. with a component with power-law number density distribution function in addition to ordinary gas.
