  2. 2. High Energy gamma-ray behavior of a potential astrophysical neutrino source : The case of TXS 0506+056

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för fysik och elektroteknik (IFE)

    Author : Nora Valtonen-Mattila; [2019]
    Keywords : Blazars; Active Galactic Nuclei; TXS 0506 056; Gamma rays; AGN; astrophysical neutrino; IceCube neutrino; astrophysical jets;

    Abstract : Blazars are a type of Active Galaxy that emit strong astrophysical jets. The association of a HE gamma-ray flare from the blazar TXS 0506+056 to the IceCube-170922A neutrino event in 2017, opened the possibility to a link between these two events. READ MORE
