Crushing of interstellar gas clouds
in supernova remnants: X-ray emission

Evolution of the X-ray emission in the [0.1 - 10] keV band originating from the shock-cloud interaction as derived from models with (model RCm50c10) or without (model HYm50c10) thermal conduction and radiative losses (see Fig. 4 in the paper). The panel on the left shows the corresponding X-ray light curve of the cloud (see Fig. 2 in the paper).
