Accretion discs in blazars

Jolley, E. J. D.; Kuncic, Zdenka; Bicknell, Geoffrey; Wagner, Stefan J

Description

The characteristic properties of blazars (rapid variability, strong polarization and high brightness) are widely attributed to a powerful relativistic jet oriented close to our line of sight. Despite the spectral energy distributions being strongly jet-dominated, a 'big blue bump' has been recently detected in the sources known as flat spectrum radio quasars (FSRQs). These new data provide a unique opportunity to observationally test coupled jet-disc accretion models in these extreme sources....[Show more]
