The fine core-jet structure of the radio galaxy M87 has been investigated in the millimeter-decimeter wave band. A counterjet whose extent is ρ(λ) ≈ 0.036λ pc, where the wavelength λ is expressed in centimeters, has been identified. At a wavelength of 2 cm, the brightness of the jet and counterjet decreases exponentially to the minimally detectable level. However, the decline for the jet slows down from a level of several percent of the peak value. The bipolar jet consists of a highly… 

Ejector and bipolar outflow of the radio galaxy M87

The superfine structure of the jet formation region in the radio galaxy M87 has been investigated. An accretion disk and high- and low-velocity jet and counterjet components have been identified. The

Structure and rotation measure of the nucleus of the galaxy M 87

The fine structure of the nucleus of the radio galaxy M 87 has been investigated at wavelengths of 2 and 3 cm. Its kinematics is determined by the inflow of the surrounding thermal plasma onto the

Kinematics of the active region of the quasar 3C 345

The fine structure of the quasar 3C 345 in polarized emission at 7 mm and 2 cm has been investigated. The kinematics is shown to correspond to an anticentrifuge: the thermal plasma of the surrounding

Fine Structure of the Core of the Blazar OJ 287. III. Polarized Emission

This conclusive paper summarizes the results of our studies of the fine and superfine structure of the blazar OJ 287 at wavelengths of 7 mm and 2 cm in polarized emission with angular resolution is

Low optical polarization at the core of the optically thin jet of M87

We study the optical linear and circular polarization in the optically thin regime of the core and jet of M87. Observations were acquired two days before the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) campaign

Observations of lensed relativistic jets as a tool for constraining lens galaxy parameters

The possibility of using lensed relativistic jets on very small angular scales to construct proper models of spiral lens galaxies and to independently determine the Hubble constant is considered. The

Collapse and backward motion of axisymmetric toroidal vortices in an accretion flow

The problem of the interaction of two coaxial, counter-rotating ring vortices in the presence of a convergent (accretion) flow with a sink at the center of symmetry has been solved. The vortices that

PROBING THE CENTRAL BLACK HOLE IN M87 WITH GAMMA-RAYS

Recent high-sensitivity observation of the nearby radio galaxy M87 has provided important insights into the central engine that drives the large-scale outflows seen in radio, optical and X-rays. This

Search for missing links between two extreme wind speed profiles: dark energy accretion and adiabatic fluid accretion

In the recent past, progress in accretion studies onto general relativistically gravitating central objects viz. a Schwarzschild singularity reveals that the accretion flow should be transonic.

The Inner Jet of the Radio Galaxy M87

We report new 2 cm VLBA images of the inner radio jet of M87 showing a limb-brightened structure and unambiguous evidence for a faint 3 mas long counterfeature which also appears limb brightened.

VLBI observations of the nucleus and jet of M87

The nucleus and jet of M87 was mapped with an eight-station very long baseline interferometric array at 18 cm wavelength with high dynamic range. It was found that the nucleus of M87 consists of a

Formation of the radio jet in M87 at 100 Schwarzschild radii from the central black hole

Massive galaxies often are the source of well collimated jets of material that flow outwards for tens to hundreds of kiloparsecs from the regions surrounding the presumed black holes at their

In this paper it is assumed that the subscale turbulent eddies induced in an ambient medium by the emergence of a (already collimated) jet from a galactic nucleus (VLBI jet) are the source of the
