The Flux Variability of Markarian 501 in Very High Energy Gamma Rays

Abstract

The BL Lacertae object Markarian 501 was identified as a source of γ-ray emission at the Whipple Observatory in March 1995. Here we present a flux variability analysis on several times-scales of the 233 hour data set accumulated over 213 nights (from March 1995 to July 1998) with the Whipple Observatory 10 m atmospheric Čerenkov imaging telescope. In 1995… (More)
