    Accretion Power in Astrophysics examines accretion as a source of energy in both binary star systems containing compact objects, and in active galactic nuclei. Assuming a basic knowledge of physics, the authors describe the physical processes at work in accretion discs and other accretion by: Cavaliere A. () Compact radiation sources in active galactic nuclei. In: Edwards C. (eds) Gravitational Radiation, Collapsed Objects and Exact Solutions. Lecture Notes in Physics, vol Author: A. Cavaliere.

    About this book Introduction This book serves as both a primer to astronomical polarimetry and an authoritative overview of its application to various types of astronomical objects from AGN, compact stars, binary systems, stars across the HR diagram, transients, the . adshelp[at] The ADS is operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory under NASA Cooperative Agreement NNX16AC86AAuthor: W. Kollatschny, M. Dietrich.

    Compact objects are stellar remnants such as white dwarfs, neutron stars, and black holes, as well as their higher mass counterparts supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. Astronomy: Two more megamasers. Nature Communications. Megamasers are a million times more luminous than typical galactic masers and are often associated with active galactic nuclei, which are bright, compact areas at the centre of galaxies. Radiation from active galactic nuclei is currently thought to be indicative of the presence of a.

What are LINERS, BL Lacs, N galaxies, broad-line radio galaxies and radio-quiet quasars and how do they compare. This timely textbook answers these questions in a clear, comprehensive and self-contained introduction to active galactic nuclei - for graduate students in astronomy and physics.

Local sources, such Cited by: The leading theory for the energy source in active galactic nuclei holds that these objects are powered by material accreting onto a supermassive black hole. As matter spirals toward the hole, it heats up, producing large amounts of energy.

How do the AGN populations evolve over cosmological timescales. The nature of compact, nonthermal jets in active galactic nuclei is reviewed from both observational and theoretical standpoints.

Despite rapid variations in brightness, the smallest emission regions in a jet may be relatively far removed from the central engine. Certain models for the formation of a relativistic particle beam that evolves downstream into the observed radio-infrared jet do Author: Alan P.
