    • Abstract

       

      We have studied the correlations between luminosities (𝐿R, 𝐿IR, 𝐿𝛾) in the radio, near-infrared and 𝛾-ray wave bands for HSP TeV BL Lacs. The results show that there are significant intrinsic correlations between 𝐿R and 𝐿𝛾 and between 𝐿IR and 𝐿𝛾 in all states (high/average/low), and suggest that for HSP TeV BL Lacs, the Synchrotron Self-Compton radiation (SSC) is the main mechanism of high energy 𝛾-ray emission, and the inverse Compton scattering of circum-nuclear dust is likely to be an important complementary mechanism.

    • Continuous Article Publication

      Posted on January 27, 2016

      Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
