The multiwavelength spectrum of BL Lacertae during its July 1997 outburst is analyzed in terms of different models for the production of high-energy radiation from blazars. We find that a two-component γ-ray spectrum, consisting of a synchrotron self-Compton and an external Compton component, is required in order to yield an acceptable fit to the broadband… CONTINUE READING
