In science:

The emission from the nebula is caused by termination shock of the pulsar wind, which is believed to be relativistic outflow of magnetized pair plasmas carrying out most of the rotation power (Rees & Gunn 1974; Kennel & Coroniti 1984a,b).

Is the astronomical forcing a reliable and unique pacemaker for Climate?
Using nonlinear prediction test (Kennel & Isabelle 1992) the MES was found to possess "a structure statistically distinguishable from high-dimensional linearly correlated noise".
Review of Nonlinear Methods and Modelling
Thus, the prediction procedure also provides a method for probing whether the time series is deterministic to beging with (Kennel & Isabelle 1992).

Historically-famous Kennel-Petscheck theory (Kennel and Petschek (1966)) for the loss-cone instability of whistler waves by the trapped electrons in the radiation belt mainly focused on this resonance.

Statistical Test for Dynamical Nonstationarity in Observed Time-Series Data
To be consistent with the theory by Kennel and Coroniti (1984), it must be of the order of 3 × 106 .
The Crab Nebula: interpretation of CHANDRA observations
For the Crab Nebula, Rn ≈ 2 pc and the shock radius is rsh = 0.1 pc (Kennel and Coroniti 1984).
The Crab Nebula: interpretation of CHANDRA observations
Kennel and Coroniti’s model simplified the picture by assuming the wind to be steady, with no wave structure.
Time-dependence in Relativistic Collisionless Shocks: Theory of the Variable "Wisps" in the Crab Nebula
All of these ideas follow Kennel and Coroniti in assuming that the pulsar’s outflow decelerates in a shock wave of unobservably small thickness, with the wisp dynamics due to phenomena in the post shock plasma (or, in the case of the Chedia et al. model, do without a shock completely).
Time-dependence in Relativistic Collisionless Shocks: Theory of the Variable "Wisps" in the Crab Nebula
The inner boundary condition for the pair plasma and magnetic field comes from the jump conditions for an in finitesimally thin shock wave in the pair plasma, as in Kennel and Coroniti (1984a).
Time-dependence in Relativistic Collisionless Shocks: Theory of the Variable "Wisps" in the Crab Nebula
Although there exist analytical approximations to the jump conditions for various limiting values of σ± (Kennel and Coroniti 1984a), we solve the general case numerically.
Time-dependence in Relativistic Collisionless Shocks: Theory of the Variable "Wisps" in the Crab Nebula
This hypothesis is consistent with the observed optical flux of the inner knot, provided its optical-gamma spectral index is the same as the injection spectral index found in the Kennel & Coroniti model of the nebula spectrum.
On the origin of variable gamma-ray emission from the Crab Nebula
The source of energy is the ultra-relativistic magnetic wind from the pulsar (Rees & Gunn 1974; Kennel & Coroniti 1984a), but the actual mechanism of particle acceleration is still a mystery.
