TitleActive galactic nuclei: Fueling and feedback
Author(s)Francoise Combes
PublicationBristol, Institute of Physics Publishing, 2021.
Abstract NoteAlmost all galaxies host in their center a supermassive black hole of mass between a million and tens of billions solar masses. Supermassive black holes grow in symbiosis with their host galaxies across the Hubble time, occasionally accreting surround matter, giving rise to an Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN). This book gives a general review of our current knowledge of AGN, powered by supermassive black holes: how they are fueled by gas (or stars) and what problems are encountered; how can we account for the wide variety of AGN, from Seyfert/Liners to quasars, and for the two types (AGN 1 and 2) either through dust obscuration, and geometrical orientation arguments, or through intrinsic activity difference, qualitative or quantitative. With modern instruments, providing high resolution and sensitivity, like ALMA in radio, or MUSE at the ESO/VLT, it is possible to unveil the interstellar medium and stars in the circumnuclear regions, discover molecular disks and tori, in the sphere of influence of the black holes. While AGN are accreting matter, they are providing so much energy that part of the surrounding gas is expelled and is observed in molecular outflows, identified as the main feedback process of AGN on their host.

TitleAn introduction to active galactic nuclei
Author(s)Bradley M. Peterson
Description1 online resource (xvi, 238 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteHow can we test if a supermassive black hole lies at the heart of every active galactic nucleus? What are LINERS, BL Lacs, N galaxies, broad-line radio galaxies and radio-quiet quasars and how do they compare? This timely textbook answers these questions in a clear, comprehensive and self-contained introduction to active galactic nuclei - for graduate students in astronomy and physics. The study of AGN is one of the most dynamic areas of contemporary astronomy, involving one fifth of all research astronomers. This textbook provides a systematic review of the observed properties of AGN across the entire electromagnetic spectrum, examines the underlying physics, and shows how the brightest AGN, quasars, can be used to probe the farthest reaches of the Universe. This book serves as both an entry point to the research literature and as a valuable reference for researchers in the field

TitleQuasars and active galactic nuclei : an introduction
Author(s)Ajit K. Kembhavi (ed.);Jayant V. Narlikar (ed.)
Description1 online resource (xiv, 463 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteThis book provides an up-to-date and comprehensive account of quasars and active galactic nuclei (AGN). The latest observations and theoretical models are combined in this clear, pedagogic textbook for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. Researchers will also find this wide-ranging and coherent review invaluable. Throughout, detailed derivations of important results are provided to ensure the book is self-contained. Theories and models are critically compared with detailed and often puzzling observations from across the spectrum. We are led through all the key topics, including quasar surveys, continuum radiation, time variability, relativistic beaming, accretion disks, jet sidedness, gravitational lensing, unification and detailed, multi-wavelength studies of individual objects. Particular emphasis is placed on radio, X- and gamma-ray observations - not covered in depth in any previous book. All those entering into this exciting and dynamic area of astronomy research will find this book an ideal introduction

TitleRevealing the heart of the galaxy: The Milkey Way and Its Black Hole
Author(s)Robert H. Sanders
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2014.
Descriptionix, 197p.
Abstract NoteWritten in an informal and engaging style, this volume traces the discoveries that led to our understanding of the size and structure of the Milky Way, and the conclusive evidence for a massive black hole at its center. Robert H. Sanders, an astronomer who witnessed many of these developments, describes how we parted the veil of interstellar dust to probe the strange phenomena within. We now know that the most luminous objects in the Universe - quasars and radio galaxies - are powered by massive black holes at their hearts. But how did black holes emerge from being a mathematical peculiarity, a theoretical consequence of Einstein's theory of gravity, to become part of the modern paradigm that explains active galactic nuclei and galaxy evolution in normal galaxies such as the Milky Way? This story, aimed at non-specialist readers and students and historians of astronomy, will both inform and entertain.

TitlePhysics and evolution of active galactic nuclei
Author(s)Hagai Netzer
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2013.
Descriptionxiv, 353p.
Abstract NoteResearch into active galactic nuclei (AGN) - the compact, luminous hearts of many galaxies - is at the forefront of modern astrophysics. Understanding these objects requires extensive knowledge in many different areas: accretion disks, the physics of dust and ionized gas, astronomical spectroscopy, star formation, and the cosmological evolution of galaxies and black holes. This new text by Hagai Netzer, a renowned astronomer and leader in the field, provides a comprehensive introduction to the theory underpinning our study of AGN and the ways that we observe them. It emphasizes the basic physics underlying AGN, the different types of active galaxies and their various components, and the complex interplay between them and other astronomical objects. Recent developments regarding the evolutionary connections between active galaxies and star-forming galaxies are explained in detail. Both graduate students and researchers will benefit from Netzer's authoritative contributions to this exciting field of research.

TitleJet paradigm: From microquasars to quasars
Author(s)Tomaso Belloni (ed.)
PublicationHeidelberg, Springer, 2010.
Descriptionxi, 291p.
Series(Lecture Notes in Physics)
Abstract NoteThese Lecture Notes focus on the physics of relativistic jet sources in the universe, from galactic microquasars to active galactic nuclei (AGN). The early 21st century is an epoch in which a large number of high-energy astronomical missions are underway (RossiXTE, Chandra, XMM-Newton, INTEGRAL, Swift, Suzaku). The wealth of X-ray and gamma-ray data, coupled with ground-based observations in the optical/IR/radio bands, provides an increasing amount of information on microquasars, allowing the investigation of the physical processes for the formation and the evolution of relativistic jets, as well as their relation to the accretion process. The information obtained from galactic relativistic jet systems is particularly important in that it can be compared with that from active galactic nuclei. The comparative study of these two classes of objects allows us to overcome their separate intrinsic limitations and is the only way to arrive at a comprehensive understanding of the accretion/ejection phenomenon. This book covers the topic of accretion/ejection in relativistic jet sources with a broad approach, from microquasars to AGN, discussing both observational and theoretical aspects. The aim is to present a broad view of the field and the current standpoint now that the first comparative studies have opened the way to a global study at a mass scale. Written in a pedagogical lecture notes style, the book benefits students and newcomers to jet astrophysics as well as lecturers and researchers.
