Active Galactic Nuclei and Gamma-Ray Bursts

Last summer (July 2009) there was a conference (Marcel Grossmann conference) held in Paris, France to discuss some of the latest research related to Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity. One session focused on the relationship between active galactic nuclei (AGN) and gamma-ray bursts. Today, astronomers released a summary report covering the current understanding of the nature of active galactic nuclei and their linkage with gamma-ray bursts.
