The Seyfert AGN RX J 0136 . 9-3510 and the Spectral State of Super Eddington Accretion Flows

We have carried out a survey of long 50ks XMM-Newton observations of a sample of bright, variable AGN. We found a distinctive energy dependence of the variability in RXJ0136.9-3510 where the fractional variability increases from 0.3 to 2 keV, and then remains constant. This is in sharp contrast to other AGN where the X-ray variability is either flat or… CONTINUE READING
