ABSTRACT

Simple expressions for the radius and magnetic field of a system emitting synchrotron self-absorbed radio and inverse-Compton X-rays are derived from first principles which involve observable quantities only. These expressions are useful for analysing observations of supernova blast waves interacting with dense circumstellar material at early times.
