J/A+A/278/6     BL Lac objects and OVV quasars     (Xie+ 1993)

The relation between BL Lac objects and OVV quasars, and the unified model of BL Lac objects, FR-I and FR-II(G) radio galaxies Xie G. Z., Zhang Y.H., FaN J.H., LIU F.K. <Astron. Astrophys. 278, 6 (1993)> =1993A&A...278....6X
ADC_Keywords: BL Lac objects Keywords: galaxies: active - BL Lacertae objects: general - quasars: general galaxies: distances and redshifts Abstract: Based on the idea that a group of extragalactic objects which can be regarded as a category with similar physical properties must fit the Hubble relation, we present a new, independent evidence that BL Lacertae objects are different from Optically Violently Variable (OVV) quasars. The unified model of BL Lac objects, FR-I, and FR-II radio galaxies is also discussed. File Summary:
