We review the basic observed and inferred properties of the broad emission-line region in AGNs, as well as the basics of the reverberation-mapping technique that can be used to determine the size and structure of the by:   Here we give an observational method for measurements of the equatorial scattering region radius using variability in the polarized broad lines in Type 1 active galactic nuclei (AGNs). How 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.

Research 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. Research into active galactic nuclei (AGNs) – the compact, luminous hearts of The broad-line region Emission-line variability and reverberation mapping The transfer function Reverberation mapping results What determines the BLR size?   Active galactic nuclei (AGN) are understood to be powered by the release of gravitational energy during accretion onto supermassive black holes (SMBHs). Reverberation mapping (RM) is a powerful probe of the kinematic and spatial distributions of ionised gas near the central SMBHs. Scaling relations have been established for the broad-line regions and for the inner edge of the d. Echo Mapping of Active Galactic Nuclei. Presented by Amit Kumar MANDAL.

  1. Introduction. Broad emission lines seen in the optical and UV spectra are the most characteristic features of active galaxies. They led to the discovery of quasars (Schmidt, ), and they remain one of the most powerful tools to study the accretion processes onto supermassive black holes, the outflows from the nuclear region, and the role of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) in shaping the.
