The FermiEGRB spectrum is in excellent agreement with IT09, indicating that blazarsare the dominant component of the… Expand

The Effect of Blazar Spectral Breaks on the Blazar Contribution to the Extragalactic Gamma-Ray Background
The spectral shapes of the contributions of different classes of unresolved gamma-ray emitters can provide insight into their relative contributions to the extragalactic gamma-ray background (EGB)Expand
Models of the Contribution of Blazars to the Anisotropy of the Extragalactic Diffuse Gamma-ray Background
We study the relation between the measured anisotropies in the extragalactic diffuse gamma-ray background (DGRB) and the DGRB spectral intensity, and their potential origin from the unresolved blazarExpand
The radio/gamma-ray connection in Fermi-blazars
We study the correlation between the gamma-ray flux F_g, averaged over the first 11 months of Fermi survey and integrated above 100 MeV, and the radio flux density (F_r at 20 GHz) of Fermi sourcesExpand
