Synchrotron polarization in blazars
(IOP Publishing, 2014)
We present a detailed analysis of time- and energy-dependent synchrotron polarization signatures in a shock-in-jet model for γ-ray blazars. Our calculations employ a full three-dimensional radiation transfer code, assuming ...
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 ...
