Particle acceleration and synchrotron emission in Mrk 501
Mrk 501 became very active in 1997. The cut-off frequency of the synchrotron emission increased by two orders of magnitude during an extensive flare, lasting several months. The increase in hard X-ray flux is accompanied by an increase in TeV emission. We have carried out several multi-frequency campaigns in 1997 and 1998, involving observations of the X-ray spectrum with SAX and XTE, as well as low-frequency monitoring during epochs of intense TeV observations. Here we report on a campaign...[Show more]
