Star formation across cosmic time with radio surveys. The promise of the SKA
This lecture briefly reviews the major recent advances in radio astronomy made possible by ultra-deep surveys, reaching microJansky flux density levels. A giant step forward in many fields, including
Modélisation de l'émission des noyaux actifs de galaxie à l'ère Fermi
Les noyaux actifs de galaxie (NAG) sont les objets les plus energetiques de l'univers. Cette incroyable puissance provient de l'energie gravitationnel de matiere en rotation autour d'un trou noir
The classification of blazars
Blazars are believed to be radio galaxies with their jets oriented at relatively small angles with respect to our line of sight. However, their separation from radio galaxies as well as their
The elementary spike produced by a pure e$^+$e$^-$ pair-electromagnetic pulse from a Black Hole: The PEM Pulse
In the framework of the model that uses black holes endowed with electromagnetic structure (EMBH) as the energy source, we study how an elementary spike appears to the detectors. We consider the
Observations of X-ray counterparts to gamma-ray bursts in RXTE's All-Sky Monitor
In this thesis, I report on a system I desigied ad implemented to rapidly indentify and localize new transient X-ray sources bSsetved by the All-Sky Monitor (ASM) on the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer
Apparent superluminal velocities and random walk in the velocity space
We conjecture that the random walk and the corresponding diffusion in the relativistic velocity space is an adequate method for describing the acceleration process in relativistic jets. Considering a
Estimating the Jet Power of Mrk 231 during the 2017–2018 Flare
Long-term 17.6~GHz radio monitoring of the broad absorption line quasar, Mrk\,231, detected a strong flare in late 2017. This triggered four epochs of Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) observations
J1110+4817 – a compact symmetric object candidate revisited
Compact symmetric objects (CSOs) are radio-emitting active galactic nuclei (AGNs) typically with a double-lobed radio structure confined to within 1 kpc. CSOs represent the earliest evolutionary
Extended Radio Structures and a Compact X-Ray Cool-core in the Cluster Source PKS 1353–341
We present a radio and X-ray study of PKS 1353-341, the brightest cluster galaxy radio source at the center of a recent Chandra-discovered X-ray cluster. Our multi-frequency VLA images reveal an
The TeV AGN Portfolio: extending Fermi LAT analysis into the CTA realm
The extragalactic γ-ray sky is completely dominated by active galax- ies, where by active we mean that a significant fraction of the emitted energy is not due to the standard components of a galaxy:


Nature of quasi-stellar objects
Quasar properties from cosmological nature, discussing red shift, luminosity, radiation intensity, absorption features, distribution, chemical composition, etc
New Limits to the Angular Sizes of Some Quasars
IN previous experiments at Jodrell Bank the angular sizes of discrete radio sources have been investigated by means of long baseline interferometers1,2. The highest resolving power used previously
Quasi-Stellar Sources: Variation in the Radio Emission of 3C 273
Evidence is presented for the first time for large fractional variations in the radio emission of the quasi-stellar sources 3C 273, 3C 279, and 3C 345, all of which have flat radio spectra at
Spectrum of the Intensity Variations in 3C 273B
Study of several dijfferent model sources shows that the observed dependence of the intensity variations on frequency can best be explained by an increase of the electron density in a source region about 2 parsecs in diameter, consistent with the distance to 3C 273 determined from Hubble's law and the observed red shift.
