This AGN textbook includes phenomena based on new results in the
X-Ray domain from new telescopes such as Chandra and XMM Newton not
mentioned in any other book. Furthermore, it considers also the
Fermi Gamma Ray Space Telescope with its revolutionary advances of
unprecedented sensitivity, field of view and all-sky monitoring.
Those and other new developments as well as simulations of AGN
merging events and formations, enabled through latest
The book gives an overview on the current knowledge of the
Active Galacitc Nuclei phenomenon. The spectral energy distribution
will be discussed, pointing out what can be observed in different
wavebands and with different physical models. Furthermore, the
authors discuss the AGN with respect to its environment, host
galaxy, feedback in galaxy clusters, etc. and finally the
cosmological evolution of the AGN phenomenon.
