Probing AGN Physics with Variability Studies

Title: Probing AGN Physics with Variability Studies 

Speaker: Yongquan Xue (USTC)  

Time: 3 pm, Nov. 29(Thursday) 

Location: Lecture Hall, 3rd floor 

Abstract: Variability is a defining and ubiquitous feature of active galactic nuclei (AGNs), and variability studies are valuable for probing AGN physical properties. In this talk, I will share with you two aspects of our recent works regarding AGN variability, after providing the relevant background information. One aspect of our works can be threaded with AGN X-ray power spectral density, and the other aspect of our works is centered around quasar UV/optical stochastic variability. Finally, I will briefly summarize my talk and discuss future prospects.
