Annotation Papers from a June 2000 meeting discuss multiwavelength monitoring methods for studying active galactic nuclei, the potential of dedicated facilities for multiwavelength monitoring, and future multiwavelength programs. Some topics discussed are multiwavelength observations of blazars, time delays of blazar flares observed at different wavebands, low radiative-efficiency accretion flows, spectrochronography, and variability of the intrinsic UV absorption lines in Seyfert galaxies. Other topics are the variable diffuse continuum emission of broad-line clouds, the MIDEX concept, and the mission. Peterson teaches astronomy at The Ohio State University. This volume lacks a subject index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
