Shock Waves in Space and Astrophysical Environments: Proceedings of the 8th Annual International Astrophysics Conference

This conference has addressed the physics of collisionless shock waves in all space and astrophysical plasma environments from both an observational and theoretical perspective. Topics discussed included shock waves in regions ranging from the solar corona, interplanetary space, the heliospheric termination shock, shocks at supernova remnants, and relativistic shocks associated with jets, etc. The conference addressed shock physics, including shock formation, structure, and stability, dissipative processes, observational techniques, modeling and simulation, particle acceleration and turbulence.
