Description

Pulsar Wind Nebulae (PWNe) are the prototypical Galactic relativistic accelerators. They are the most promising astrophysical labs where high-energy astrophysical processes can be investigated in details. They are also among the best studied objects in the sky, at the forefront of observational and theoretical endeavors. I will briefly review the current status of our knowledge of these objects, with a focus on their role as particle accelerators, and non-thermal sources in the Galaxy, together with the latest observational results.
