AGN Jets: Lessons We Could Learn in the Past 100 years

Author(s): Masanori Nakamura

Presenter: Masanori Nakamura (ASIAA)

Relativistic jets from Active Galactic Nuclei (AGNs) are one of major
problems in high energy/black hole astrophysics since 1918 when the jet
was first discovered in the nearby radio galaxy M87. Even now the origin
of AGN jets has not yet been resolved, but the "Event Horizon Telescope"
project including the ASIAA-led Greenland Telescope will finally reveal
the formation region of the M87 jet in coming years. I will summarize
theoretical and observational understandings of AGN jets and introduce a
unified view of AGN jets under the co-evolution of the black hole and host galaxy.
