Relativistic Jets in Active Galactic Nuclei

Abstract

This review discusses the basic characteristics of the jets in active galactic nuclei (AGN). It concentrates on the highly relativistic variety found in blazars, since these are the closest cousins to the jets seen in some X-ray binaries (microquasars) and the collimated, ultra-fast flows inferred to exist in gamma ray bursts. The fastest AGN jets are gamma… (More)
