So the shock structure evolves in a self-similar fashion, depending only on the similarity variable, x/(ust) (see Kang & Jones 2007).

A Factorial Experiment on Scalability of Search Based Software Testing
DSA and full code details can be found in Kang & Jones (2006).
Nonthermal Radiation from Type Ia Supernova Remnants
Kang et al. (2009) found for strong, CR modified, plane shocks that approximately χ ∝ M1/3 , where M is the shock sonic Mach number.
Nonthermal Radiation from Type Ia Supernova Remnants
ST solution is established only after the inner reverse shock is reflected at the center at t/to ∼ 7, (e.g., Kang 2006).
Nonthermal Radiation from Type Ia Supernova Remnants
Since weak shocks must be inefficient accelerators of CR, these observations may suggest that re-acceleration of relativistic (seeds) electrons is an important process in these environments (Kang, this conference).
Cosmic rays and diffuse non-thermal emission in galaxy clusters: an introduction
Kang argued that the Donnachie-Landshoff fit, with exchange-degenerate non-leading tra jectories, is unstable under the filtering process.
The VIIth Blois Workshop: Theory Summary and Factorization Issues
Kang presented a prescription for quantizing a scalar field in the presence of classically unstable modes, and showed how the ergoregion instability persists in the quantum theory.

The injection issue was the sub ject of two papers, Gieseler, Jones & Kang (OG 3.3.20) and Sugiyama & Fujimoto (OG 3.3.21), though neither paper treated electron injection, a perennial concern for theorists.
Cosmic Ray Origin, Acceleration and Propagation
Gieseler et al. developed Kang & Jones’ diffusion-convection equation approach to modelling acceleration at nonlinear shocks by incorporating a description, due to Malkov, of the interaction of thermal ions with self-generated magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) waves.
