The stability problem of the rotation-induced electrostatic wave in extragalactic jets is presented. Solving a set of equations describing dynamics of a relativistic plasma flow of active galactic nuclei (AGN) jets, an expression of the instability rate has been derived and analyzed for typical values of AGNs. The growth rate was studied versus the wavelength and the inclination angle and it has been found that the instability process is very efficient with respect to the accretion disk evolution, indicating high efficiency of the instability.

    Redshift observations of galaxies outside the Local Group are fairly common in extragalactic astrophysics. Because redshifts are usually interpreted as arising from radial velocities, they must be corrected by removing the contributions caused by solar motion. We discuss the details of such...

    NGC 4258 plays a crucial role in the Extragalactic Distance Scale because it is the only nearby galaxy with a very accurate and precise distance measurement (3% total uncertainty). We present results from recent HST observations of Cepheids in this galaxy, obtained as part of the SH0ES project....
