Synthetic X-ray spectra for simulations of the dynamics of an accretion flow irradiated by a quasar

Sim, Stuart A; Proga, D; Kurosawa, R; Long, K S; Miller, L; Turner, T J


Ultraviolet and X-ray observations show evidence of outflowing gas around many active galactic nuclei. It has been proposed that some of these outflows are driven off gas infalling towards the central supermassive black hole. We perform radiative transfer calculations to compute the gas ionization state and the emergent X-ray spectra for both two- and three-dimensional (3D) hydrodynamical simulations of this outflow-from-inflow scenario. By comparison with observations, our results can be used...[Show more]
