Relativistic Jets from Active Galactic Nuclei
Markus Boettcher, Daniel E. Harris, Henric Krawczynski
John Wiley & Sons, Feb 2, 2012 - Science - 250 pages
Written by a carefully selected consortium of researchers working in the field, this book fills the gap for an up-to-date summary of the observational and theoretical status. As such, this monograph includes all used wavelengths, from radio to gamma, the FERMI telescope, a history and theory refresher, and jets from gamma ray bursts.
For astronomers, nuclear physicists, and plasmaphysicists.
