Abstract [en]

A better understanding of the relaxation of relativistic plasma flow is required to identify particle acceleration and radiation generation mechanisms at gamma ray bursts (GRBs). We perform particle-in-cell (PIC) simulations of the electrostatic two-stream instability for a beam speed VB with Gamma (v_b) = 100. The two p+e- beams are charge neutral and have comparable densities. The instability saturates by trapping the electrons of one beam and it modulates the electron density of the second beam. The electrostatic fields are compressed in the forming cavities to high intensities. The waves collapse, after which the electrons show an exponential tail that is eventually transformed into a power law tail.
