Model geometry showing our choices of axis and angles. The interaction has cylindrical symmetry around the z axis. The two thick solid lines in the (x,z) plane represent the pulsar wind termination shock and the contact discontinuity with the shocked stellar wind. Dashed lines represent the same in the (y,z) plane. Particles injected at the termination shock follow streamlines in the region in between these two surfaces.
