The latest analysis efforts in reverberation mapping are beginning to allow reconstruction of echo images (or velocity-delay maps) that encode information about the structure and kinematics of the broad line region (BLR) in active galactic nuclei (AGNs). Such maps can constrain sophisticated physical models for the BLR. The physical picture of the BLR is often theorized to be a photoionized wind launched from the AGN accretion disk. Previously we showed that the line-driven disk wind solution… 
The reverberation signatures of rotating disc winds in active galactic nuclei
The broad emission lines (BELs) in active galactic nuclei (AGNs) respond to ionizing continuum variations. The time and velocity dependence of their response depends on the structure of the
Kinematic Signatures of Reverberation Mapping of Close Binaries of Supermassive Black Holes in Active Galactic Nuclei
Close binaries of supermassive black holes (CB-SMBHs) with separations of ≲0.1 pc as the final stage of galaxy mergers are sources of low-frequency gravitational waves; however, they are still
Monitoring AGNs with Hβ Asymmetry. I. First Results: Velocity-resolved Reverberation Mapping
We have started a long-term reverberation mapping (RM) project using the Wyoming Infrared Observatory 2.3 m telescope titled “Monitoring AGNs with Hβ Asymmetry” (MAHA). The motivations of the project
Velocity-resolved Reverberation Mapping of Five Bright Seyfert 1 Galaxies
We present the first results from a reverberation-mapping campaign undertaken during the first half of 2012, with additional data on one active galactic nucleus (AGN) (NGC 3227) from a 2014 campaign.
Failed radiatively Accelerated Dusty Outflow model of the Broad Line Region in Active Galactic Nuclei. I. Analitical solution
The physical origin of the broad line region in active galactic nuclei is still unclear despite many years of observational studies. The reason is that the region is unresolved, and the reverberation
The Picture of BLR in 2.5D FRADO: Dynamics and Geometry
The dynamics of the broad line region (BLR) in active galaxies is an open question; direct observational constraints suggest a predominantly Keplerian motion, with possible traces of inflow or
Stratified disc wind models for the AGN broad-line region: ultraviolet, optical, and X-ray properties
The origin, geometry and kinematics of the broad line region (BLR) gas in quasars and active galactic nuclei (AGN) are uncertain. We demonstrate that clumpy biconical disc winds illuminated by an AGN
Nature of quasar disk-wind
The brightest persistent astrophysical sources in the universe are quasars, a group of active galactic nuclei (AGN) that appear star-like and radiate across all wavelengths. The emitted radiation is
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey Reverberation Mapping Project: How Broad Emission Line Widths Change When Luminosity Changes
Quasar broad emission lines are largely powered by photoionization from the accretion continuum. Increased central luminosity will enhance line emissivity in more distant clouds, leading to increased
Emission Signatures from Sub-parsec Binary Supermassive Black Holes. II. Effect of Accretion Disk Wind on Broad Emission Lines
We present an improved semi-analytic model for calculation of the broad optical emission-line signatures from sub-parsec supermassive black hole binaries (SBHBs) in circumbinary disks. The
