Inverse Compton scattering – revisited
The inverse Compton scattering of high energy electrons by photons is discussed and a simple derivation of the total power radiated is presented. The derivation is completely classical and exhibits clearly why similar formulas are applicable in the case of inverse compton scattering and synchroton radiation.

Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
