Orientation Effects and Seyfert Cores
Activity in galaxies takes on a bewildering array of guises. Not all of this diversity comes from fundamentally diverse physics, but if we can understand the relationships between different types of galaxy then we may be able to perceive the underlying physics. This taxonomic approach aims to determine which properties are common to several types of galaxy, and which properties differ. The danger in this process is that it is easy to invent spurious relationships between similar, but quite distinct, types of object.
