The Unified Model for AGNs


  • Black holes - some of their properties and the phenomena associated with them.

  • Evidence that black holes are the central objects within galaxies and AGNs, and not some other form of concentrated mass.

  • Energy generation via black holes —the Penrose process and accretion disks.

  • Minimum (Eddington) masses for sources of a given luminosity.

  • The unifi ed model for AGNs - its successes and current problems.
