The probability distribution of (εCR,u,εacc) 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).
