ACCRETION AND EMISSION PROCESSES IN AGN
Advanced Lectures on the Starburst-AGN Connection
The UV-X continuum, the X-ray spectral features, and the variability in these bands provide powerful tools for studying the innermost regions of AGNs from which we gain an insight into the accretion process. In this chapter the discussion focusses on luminous AGN, i.e. Seyfert galaxies and quasars. The standard accretion disk model (a stationary geometrically thin disk) is described, and vertically averaged solutions for the radial structure are given. The emission of the standard disk isdoi:10.1142/9789812811318_0005 fatcat:tpat5pt7bjbi3bhxu7jtl73oxy
