Quasar viscosity crisis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Recent observations of extreme variability in active galactic nuclei have pushed standard viscous accretion disk models over the edge. I suggest either that some kind of non-local physics dominates accretion disks, or that the optical output we see comes entirely from reprocessing a central source.
