Particle diffusion and localized acceleration in inhomogeneous AGN jets. I. Steady-state spectra
(Oxford University Press, 2015)
We study the acceleration, transport, and emission of particles in relativistic jets. Localized stochastic particle acceleration, spatial diffusion, and synchrotron as well as synchrotron self-Compton (SSC) emission are ...
Particle diffusion and localized acceleration in inhomogeneous AGN jets. II. Stochastic variation
(Oxford Univ Press, 2016)
We study the stochastic variation of blazar emission under a 2D spatially resolved leptonic jet model we previously developed. Random events of particle acceleration and injection in small zones within the emission region ...
Magnetic field amplification and flat spectrum radio quasars
(Oxford University Press, 2014)
We perform time-dependent, spatially resolved simulations of blazar emission to evaluate several flaring scenarios related to magnetic-field amplification and enhanced particle acceleration. The code explicitly accounts ...
