Fig. 3


Maps of various quantities in the shocked pulsar wind. The particle density n, pressure p, and magnetic field are displayed on a logarithmic scale ranging down to 10-4 of the maximum value (top colour bar). The magnetic field b1 (resp. b2) is calculated using Eq. (29) (resp. Eq. (30)) at the shock. The adiabatic index and Lorentz factor Γ are displayed on a linear scale (bottom colour bars). The map spatial scale is in units of the orbital separation d with the pulsar at (1,0) and the star at (0,0).
