This instability generates semi-coherent, low-frequency electromagnetic waves (Gallant et al. 1992; Hoshino et al. 1992; Lyubarsky in preparation).

A Fast Mean-Reverting Correction to Heston's Stochastic Volatility Model
Given Proposition 1, we need only show that if consistency holds then concentration must also hold. 54Following, e.g., Gallant and White (1988), we say the sequence β n is identifiably unique on B if Q0,n (β n ) − Q0,n (β ) > 0.

Excitation of Alfven Waves and Pulsar Radio Emission
Apart from providing efficient mechanism for acceleration of leptons inside the PWNe, such model can also successfully explain the appearance of thin synchrotron filaments in the Crab Nebula (Gallant & Arons 1994).
Gamma-rays from the pulsar wind nebulae
In the model of Gallant & Arons (1994), the iron nuclei generate the Alfven waves in the down-stream region of the wind shock, which energy is resonantly transfered to positrons present in the wind, as shown by particle-in-cell simulations by Hoshino et al. (1992).
Gamma-rays from the pulsar wind nebulae
PWNe – i.e., pulsars displaying a prominent nebular emission – currently constitute the most populated class of identified Galactic VHE sources (7 identifications – e.g., Gallant 2006).
VHE astrophysics: recent developments

Model checks for the volatility under microstructure noise
In fact, such an assumption can explain morphological features of the Crab Nebula and also the appearance of extremely energetic leptons inside the nebula accelerated as a result of the rezonant scattering of positrons and electrons by heavy nuclei (Hoshino et al. 1992, Gallant & Arons 1994).
Neutrinos from the pulsar wind nebulae
Hoshino et al. (1992) and Gallant et al. (1992), the coherent ion orbits invoked in the model of GA are unstable to gyrophase bunching and emission of magnetosonic waves.

Diffusive Fermi acceleration (DFA) in transverse relativistic shocks is often invoked as the mechanism for such acceleration (see Gallant 2002 for a review).
