The study of AGN is one of the most dynamic areas of contemporary astronomy, involving one-fifth of all research astronomers. This textbook provides a systematic review of the observed properties of AGN across the entire electromagnetic spectrum, examines the underlying physics, and shows how the brightest AGN--quasars--can be used to probe the farthest reaches of the Universe. This timely textbook is a clear, comprehensive and self-contained introduction to active galactic nuclei (AGN)--for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in astronomy and physics.

Book Description:

At least one galaxy in every hundred has a core so bright it outshines the ten thousand million stars that make up rest of the galaxy. The study of these 'active galactic nuclei' (AGN) is one of the most dynamic areas of contemporary astronomy, involving one fifth of all research astronomers. This textbook provides a clear, comprehensive and self-contained introduction to AGN for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in astronomy and physics. It presents a systematic review of the observed properties of AGN across the entire electromagnetic spectrum, examines the underlying physics, and shows how the brightest AGN, quasars, can be used to probe the Universe. It serves as an entry point to the research literature and an invaluable reference for researchers in the field.

Review:

"...this well-written text provides an excellent introduction to a stimulating field, and conclusively answers the question: Why study AGN? I would highly recommend it to students and researchers alike." Michael De Robertis, Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada
