Numerical Modelling of Galactic-Cosmic-Ray Transport with a Galactic Wind
(Supervision: Ralf Kissmann)


We are modelling the transport of Galactic cosmic rays using the transport code PICARD developed here in Innsbruck. Even though a Galactic wind has been observed for many galaxies, most Galactic-cosmic-ray transport models only use no or a very simplified description of such a Galactic wind. In this bachelor thesis, Galactic wind models will be implemented according to related analytical models from the literature. The numerical transport model is then solved in the presence of such a wind. The wind models will finally, be evaluated by investigating the impact on the resulting cosmic-ray flux at Earth.
