This year's YERAC will be organized and sponsored by the MPI for Radioastronomy in collaboration with its IMPRS for Astronomy and Astrophysics. As in most years since 1968, early stage radioastronomers (i.e. PhD candidates and postdocs) will meet, discuss and network in a relaxed atmosphere. Each participant is given the opportunity to give an oral talk.
Active Galactic Nuclei: What's in a name?
26 Nov 2015
Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) are being discovered in ever-larger numbers
over the whole electromagnetic spectrum. Different bands employ
different methods to identify these sources but, most importantly,
provide different windows on AGN physics. The infrared band is mostly
sensitive to obscuring material and dust, the optical/UV band is related
to emission from the accretion disk, while the X-ray band traces the
emission of a (putative) corona. γ-ray and (high flux density) radio
samples, on the other hand, preferentially select AGN emitting strong
