On the "periodic" lightcurves of Active Galactic Nuclei

I don't think what you're seeing is periodicity; my bet is that it's just stochastic red noise. Searches for periodicity or quasi-periodic oscillations (QPOs) in AGN light curves is a difficult and at ...

On the "periodic" lightcurves of Active Galactic Nuclei

AGN's are divided into roughly 3 types, Quasars, Seyfert galaxies and radio galaxies. All of these produce light, each in their own electromagnetic spectrum and intensity like quasar emits across all, ...
