On the spectral energy distribution of HAWC's sources

We present a systematic study of the TeV gamma-ray spectrum
for the sources in the 2HWC HAWC catalog. Three spectrum models are considered in the analysis: simple power law, power law with exponential cut-off and a log-parabola. A comparison of the test statistic of nested models was performed in order to look for the best description. We used gamma-ray sky maps of 17 and 25 months of HAWC data. From the analysis, only three sources of the catalog deviate from simple power law spectrum with high significance. The corresponding parameters are given in each case.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
