The probability distribution of (εCR,uacc) for relativistic cosmic rays in the bow shock in the galaxy cluster A520, assuming εB,u = 0 and εCR,u < 0.3. The contours divide the plane so that the cumulative distribution above the contour includes only 0.33 (lower contour) and 0.05 (upper contour) of the total probability. The probability is calculated via a Monte Carlo simulation (see text).
