Written by a carefully selected consortium of researchers working in the field, this book fills the gap for an up-to-date summary of the observational and theoretical status. As such, this monograph includes all used wavelengths, from radio to gamma, the FERMI telescope, a history and theory refresher, and jets from gamma ray bursts.
For astronomers, nuclear physicists, and plasmaphysicists.

Henric Krawczynski is professor at Washington University. Prior to that, he has performed research at University of Hamburg, the Max-Planck-Institute for Nuclear Physics, and at Yale University.
An outstanding Faculty Mentor Award of the Graduate Student Senate attests to his teaching skills. His research focuses on observations of high energy emission regions in distant galaxies and quasars.

Markus Boettcher obtained his PhD at the University and the Max-Planck-Institute for radio astronomy in Bonn, Germany. Postdoctoral positions included stays at Rice University, TX, and with the U.S. Naval Research Lab. in Washington, DC. Since 2007 he is holding a professorship at Ohio University. His Research interests are active galactic nuclei, galactic black-hole candidates and gamma-ray bursts.

Daniel E. Harris, after earning his PhD at California Institute of Technology, has held various research positions, for example at Arecibo Observatory, Puerto Rico, Harvard College Observatory, USA, and the Center for Astrophysics of the Smithsonian Institution. He headed the ROSAT project from '95-'00 and was member of the Chandra User Support Group. His field of investigation are non-thermal processes in extragalactic sources, involving radio and X-ray analyses of galaxies and quasars, and of emission processes responsible for X-rays from radio jets.
