Polarization signatures of relativistic magnetohydrodynamic shocks in the blazar emission region. I. Force-free helical magnetic fields
The optical radiation and polarization signatures in blazars are known to be highly variable during flaring activities. It is frequently argued that shocks are the main driver of the flaring events. However, the spectral ...
Leptonic and lepto-hadronic modeling of the 2010 November flare from 3C 454.3
In this study, we use a one-zone leptonic and a lepto-hadronic model to investigate the multi-wavelength emission and prominent flare of the flat spectrum radio quasar 3C 454.3 in 2010 November. We perform a parameter study ...
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 ...
Gamma-gamma absorption in the broad line region radiation fields of gamma-ray blazars
(IOP Publishing, 2016)
The expected level of γγ absorption in the Broad Line Region (BLR) radiation field of γ-ray loud Flat Spectrum Radio Quasars (FSRQs) is evaluated as a function of the location of the γ-ray emission region. This is done ...
