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 ...
Polarization swings reveal magnetic energy dissipation in blazars
(American Astronomical Society, 2015)
The polarization signatures of blazar emissions are known to be highly variable. In addition to small fluctuations of the polarization angle around a mean value, large (gsim180°) polarization angle swings are sometimes ...
Multiwavelength polarization as a diagnostic of blazar physics
(Sissa Medialab, 2015)
The nature of the high-energy emission in jet-dominated AGN (especially blazars) as well as the location and mode of acceleration of particles to ultra- relativistic energies are a matter of intensive debate. Both leptonic ...
