Caption: Figure 2.

(a) The termination shock location for compression ratio R = 4 and Δr = 37.6 AU. The arrows represent the plasma flow vector on the downstream region of the shock. (b) The heliocentric distance of the termination shock and (c) The radial component of the downstream plasma velocity on the termination shock location as a function of θ angle. The mathematical model predicts polar and caudal elongation of the shock, but for non-physical heliosheath flows.
