    from observations whether a system has a thin or ADAF disk. The ADAF model provides a good fit to the spectra of Galactic black hole X-ray binary sources (BHXBs), which should be a low-mass accretion version of Seyfert 1 galaxies and QSOs (Esin, McClintock, & Narayan ; Esin et al. ). This. Abstract Preliminary analysis of the X-ray spectrum of NGC obtained by the RGS spectrometer on board XMM-Newton is presented. A physically consistent model is developed in order to quantitatively describe the reprocessing of the central AGN continuum source into the discrete X-ray emission observed in Seyfert 2 galaxies.

    classical spiral galaxies? • The X-ray spectra of the gamma-ray emitting NLSy1s are harder than those of the other NLSy1s, suggesting the relativistic jet being the dominant emission component. A clear soft X-ray excess was observed in PMN J+ below 2 keV, but we are observing the same Seyfert-like component of the radio-quiet NLSy1s? The X-ray Variability of Seyfert Galaxies by Kevin Marshall Under the Direction of H. Richard Miller Abstract Strong and variable X-ray emission has long been known to be a universal property of active galaxies. However, despite years of study, the exact nature of the variabil-ity remains relatively unknown.

    Long-Term X-Ray Spectral Variability in Seyfert 1 Galaxies: Authors: Direct time-resolved spectral fitting has been performed on continuous Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer monitoring of seven Seyfert 1 galaxies to study their broadband spectral variability and Fe Kα variability characteristics on timescales of days to years. Variability in the. Seyfert galaxies are a class of galaxies with nuclei that produce spectral line emission from highly ionized gas. They are a subclass of active galactic nuclei (AGN), and are thought to contain supermassive black holes.. X-ray bright galaxies. The following early-type galaxies (NGCs) have been observed to be X-ray bright due to hot gaseous coronae: , , , , , , ,

Seyfert galaxies were first detected in by Edward A. Fath and Vesto Slipher, who were using the Lick Observatory to look at the spectra of astronomical objects that were thought to be "spiral nebulae".They noticed that NGC showed six bright emission lines, which was considered unusual as most objects observed showed an absorption spectrum corresponding to stars.

The soft X-ray ( keV) emission of most of the galaxies (>80%), including LIRGs hosting a Seyfert 2 nucleus, is dominated by star-formation related processes. The X-ray spectrum, therefore, provides simultaneous velocity and column density constraints of highly ionized to only slightly ionized gas harbored in many of these systems.

For normal galaxies, we think of the total energy they emit as the sum of the emission from each of the stars found in the galaxy, but in active galaxies, this is not true. There is a great deal more emitted energy in active galaxies than there should be and this excess energy is found in the infrared, radio, UV, and X-ray regions of the.

Seyfert Galaxies. Almost all Seyfert galaxies are spiral galaxies and have been among the most intensively studied objects in astronomy, primarily because they are thought to be nearby, low-luminosity versions of the same phenomenon observed in quasars.

A massive black hole in the nucleus of a galaxy, accreting gas from its surrounding environment, is thought to power all these objects. X-ray Clusters of Galaxies as Cosmological Tools 5 thus lead to a straightforward computation of comoving number densities.

Always spiral in structure, a galaxy of the Seyfert class is characterized by a nucleus with narrow and broad emission lines spanning a wide range of per-mitted and forbidden ionization states, X-ray and weak.
