USING SWIFT FOR MULTIWAVELENGTH STUDIES OF FERMI BLAZARS: SEDS AND LONG-TERM LIGHTCURVES

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

THIS PROPOSAL WILL ENABLE LONG-TERM LOW-TO-HIGH STATE MULTIWAVELENGTH COVERAGE OF FERMI SOURCES OF INTEREST SPECIFICALLY WITH SWIFT WHILE ALSO ENABLING MORE INTENSE TOOS ON HIGH STATES FROM BLAZARS AND TRANSIENTS. IN THE COMING CYCLE WE WILL ADD VALUE BY IMPLEMENTING SED FITTING WITH LEPTO-HADRONIC MODELS WITH PUBLICLY POSTED RESULTS. THIS LEGACY PROJECT IS NEEDED FOR LONG-TERM MULTI-BAND CORRELATION AND EMISSION STUDIES IN LOW-TO-HIGH STATES ENABLING ACCELERATION/EMISSION STUDIES OF BLAZARS. OBSERVATIONS WILL BE COORDINATED WITH OTHER OBSERVATORIES TO MAXIMIZE SCIENCE RETURN. THIS EFFORT PROVIDES A REAL-TIME PUBLIC REDUCED-DATA SERVICE AND AN ARCHIVAL LEGACY PROJECT FOR ALL RESEARCHERS OF THESE HIGH INTEREST FERMI SOURCES
