We present results from an analysis of the radio properties of two samples of sources: 1. EGRET-detected AGNs and 2. relatively bright and densely sampled southern AGNs not detected with EGRET. The radio properties of the detected and non-detected sources show similarity. When analysing the millimeter flux curves it turns out that most of the EGRET-detections were made when the source was going through the initial stages of a radio flare. These results suggest that many sources that exhibit blazar-like behavior in the millimeter domain could be detected at gamma energies if observed during the initial growth stages of a strong radio flare. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We briefly describe some recent observational results, mainly at X-ray wavelengths, on the winds of luminous active galactic nuclei (AGNs). These winds likely play a significant role in galaxy feedback. Topics covered include (1) Relations between X-ray and UV absorption in Broad Absorption Line...

    We present AGN feedback in the interesting cases of two groups: AWM 4 and NGC 5044. AWM 4 is characterized by a combination of properties which seems to defy the paradigm for AGN heating in cluster cores: a flat inner temperature profile indicative of a past, major heating episode which...

    We present multiwavelength data for the variable EGRET sources 3EG J2006-2321 and 3EG J0433+2908. The former is listed as unidentified in the 3rd EGRET Catalog and the latter is listed as an AGN; however, as yet there has been no formal presentation of its broad-band characteristics. The most...

    We present a new population of radio quasars whose X-ray band, unlike previously known sources which have (flat) inverse Compton radiation, is characterized by (steep) synchrotron emission, with a broad-band spectral energy distribution similar to that of BL Lacs with high energy synchrotron...

    We show that current clustering observations of quasars and luminous AGN can be explained by a merger model augmented by feedback from outflows. Using numerical simulations large enough to study clustering out to 25 comoving h-1 Mpc, we calculate correlation functions, biases, and correlation...

    While feedback is important in theoretical models, we do not really know if it works in reality. Feedback from jets appears to be sufficient to keep the cooling flows in clusters from cooling too much and it may be sufficient to regulate black hole growth in dominant cluster galaxies. Only about...

    Combined Spitzer, Chandra, XMM-Newton, and VLA observations of the radio elliptical galaxy NGC 1316 (Fornax A) show features indicative of an AGN outburst most likely triggered by a merger with a galaxy whose gas mass was ∼4×109 M⊙ about 0.4 Gyr ago. X-ray cavities in both the...
