    • Modelling the spectral energy distribution and polarisation of blazars 

      Schutte, Hester Maria (North-West University (South Africa), 2019)
      The optical emission from most blazars is dominated by the polarised synchrotron radiation of relativistic electrons in the jet. However, the thermal radiation from the accretion disc and host galaxy also contributes towards ...
    • Monte Carlo Simulations of Compton Polarization in Astrophysical Sources 

      Dreyer, L. (North-West University (South Africa)North-West University, 2020)
      The description of many high-energy astrophysical sources relies on the production of relativistic jets that are accompanied by the acceleration of particles up to very high energies, and the production of non-thermal ...
