Post subject:  What GALPROP parameters to use for emission above 1 TeV?  
Hi, I am trying to model the gammaray emission up to 100 TeV. Here is my first attempt: http://galprop.stanford.edu/wrxiv/0353/ ... uo2.tar.gz As the WebRun Quick Plot (attached) shows, the inverse Compton spectrum is nonsmooth above 1 TeV. Why is that? What parameters do I have to change to get a smooth spectrum? Are my other parameters reasonable, or should I change some to get a good estimate of the emission at very high energies? What parameters would correspond to a model where the highenergy emission is as bright as possible without violating any strong constraints, such as Fermi measurements? Besides the spectrum I am also interested in the scale height in GLAT of the emission, i.e. in the region abs(GLAT) < 3. Any help and pointers are much appreciated! Christoph

Christoph, I made a similar run, setting the electron and photon energy grids to your values (Ekin_min=1e1, Ekin_max=1e8; E_gamma_min=1e4, E_gamma_max=1e8; long_min=0; long_max=360; lat_min=5; lat_max=+5). I did not use anisotropic IC, just to save time. Results: 1) for E_gamma_factor=1.5 (like in your run) I get the same jagged spectrum of IC. 2) for E_gamma_factor=1.3 (just to make it smaller), IC came out with a smooth spectrum. 3) for E_gamma_factor=1.19 (a test), the IC spectrum is jagged again. I think it is related to the fact that Ekin_factor=1.3 in these runs, and there must be some interpolation problem in GALPROP. Anyway, setting E_gamma_factor=Ekin_factor seems to work for now, and the other cases reveal a problem. Please try rerunning your configuration with a different Ekin_factor (the Import button in the Download Results section will copy all the parameters into a new form), and if you find the same, would you kindly file a bug report via http://galprop.stanford.edu/bugs/ ? I am asking you to do this instead of doing it myself because it will set a good example if users outside the GALPROP team participate in bug reporting Andrey

I ran using the parameters you suggested, got the same results and filed a bug report: http://galprop.stanford.edu/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=6 My other questions stand: if someone has suggestions about good GALPROP parameters to model 1  100 TeV emission, please don't hold back. Preferably I would use a published model, so if someone can refer me to a paper that would be great!
