We have developed a model for the variability of gamma ray emission in jets of active galactic nuclei in which the variability arises as a result of photon-photon pair production interactions with X-rays emitted by a hot spot in the inner part of the accretion disk. As the hot spot orbits around the central engine, the amount of absorption varies… CONTINUE READING
