Supernova remnants interacting with molecular clouds as seen with H.E.S.S    [PDF]

About 30 Galactic supernova remnants (SNRs) are thought to be physically associated with molecular clouds (MCs). These systems are prime \g-ray source candidates as the accelerated particles from shock fronts collide with the surrounding high-density medium thus emitting gamma-rays through hadronic interactions. However only a handful of such interacting SNRs are detected at TeV energies. We report the current status of the High Energy Stereoscopic System (H.E.S.S.) observations towards these SNR-MC systems, with a particular emphasis on the latest results.
