Broadband spectral modelling of bent jets of Active Galactic Nuclei

  title={Broadband spectral modelling of bent jets of Active Galactic Nuclei},
  author={B. Sahayanathan},
In this thesis, models have been developed to study the radiation emission processes from the knots of AGN jets as well as for blazar jets. A continuous injection plasma model is developed to study the X-ray emission from the knots of sources 1136-135, 1150+497, 1354+195 and 3C 371. The knot dynamics is then studied within the framework of internal shock model. In such a scenario, knots are formed due to the collision of two successive matter blobs emitted sporadically from the central engine…
