$γ$-Ray Generation in Microquasars: the link with AGN

Abstract

The link between the physical processes responsible for high energy emission from relativistic jets in AGN and microquasars is investigated. A Fortran code based on an existing inhomogeneous, synchrotron self-Compton (SSC) model, for AGN is presented. The code is then applied to the AGN 3C 279 and the microquasar LS5039. Spectral energy distributions (SED’s) are presented.
