Multifrequency Behavior of Microquasars in the GeV--TeV era: A review

Bosch-Ramon, V.
eprint arXiv:1106.2059
Microquasars are X-ray binaries that present non-thermal radio jets. Efficient particle acceleration can take place in different regions of the jets of microquasars. The accelerated particles can emit gamma-rays via leptonic or hadronic processes, with a complex spectral and temporal behavior. The jet termination region can be also an efficient non-thermal emitter, as well as, in high-mass microquasars, the region of the binary system outside the jet. In this work, I briefly describe the physics behind the non-thermal emission observed in microquasars at different scales, focusing in the GeV and TeV bands.
