2 Outline Examination of magnetic acceleration & collimation zone in the M87 jet; how does the jet become relativistic? Structural transitions of AGN jets constrained by the mass of SMBHs; a stationary feature may play a role Future prospects of the sub-mm VLBI project to explorer the SMBH & the origin of the M87 jet

3 Observational Aspects Best candidate for studying relativistic jets Nearby: D 16 Mpc (1 mas = 0.08 pc) FR I: Misaligned BL Lac ( θ view 14 ; Wang & Zhou 2009) (6.6 ± 0.4) 10 9 M SMBH mass: (Gebhardt et al. 2011) VLBA resolution: 20 RS at 43 GHz Sub-mm VLBI resolution: 3 RS at 345 GHz (w/ GL) VLBA Movie at 43GHz (C. Walker, NRAO) Well studied at wavelengths from radio to X-ray Proper motions (sub/super-luminal feature) Polarization (20-60%; ordered B-fields) Substructure (limb-brightened, knots, wiggles,...), indicating a role of B-fields In situ particle acceleration (Fermi-I diffusive shock processes) HST Movie (J. Biretta, STScI)

4 Observational Aspects (cont.) X-ray: XMM-Newton M87 M87 Forman et al. (2005) Radio: VLA M87 Image credit: X-ray (NASA/CXC/KIPAC/N. Werner, E. Million et al); Radio (NRAO/AUI/NSF/F. Owen) Owen et al. (2000) X-ray observations reveal the property of ISM, as well as interactions between the jet and ISM Transferring the enormous energy in the nucleus on the circumgalactic environment (from 10-4 to 105 pc)

(2007) A flaring from radio through optical to X-ray (factor 50) bands (Harris et al. 2006) at HST-1, indicating a site for TeV γ-ray emissions (Harris et al. 2009) HST-1c evidently splits into two roughly equally bright knots: superluminal (c1; 4.3c) and trailing sub-luminal (c2; 0.47c) components during Q. HST-1 as an origin of superluminal knots (Cheung et al. 2007)? (e.g., Biretta et al. 1999)

(1996) Transverse field component is dominant in some knots (HST-1, D, A, and C) Sudden changes in B-vector orientation strongly imply the existence of MHD fast/slow-mode waves (w/ high Pol. 20% at inter-knot regions) Presence of four shocks, instead of two, is due to the presence of Bφ (equivalent to B in the simpler planer oblique shocks) may be favored

9 Puzzle Remains Unsolved for 2 Decades Apparent speed (V/c) Reid et al. (1989) Junor & Biretta (1995) Biretta et al. (1995) Biretta et al. (1999) Cheung et al. (2007) Kovalev et al. (2007) Distance from the nucleus: z (arcsec) N2 L HST-1 D E F AB C Junor et al. (1999) log r (arcsec) Distance from the nucleus: z (pc) Superluminal motions begin at HST-1, lying about 1 ( 80 pc) from the nucleus Many VLBI observations show sub-luminal motions upstream of HST-1 Visible pc-scale features may reside in slower layers near the surface (Biretta et al. 1999) or possibly standing shocks and/or instability patterns (Kovalev et al. 2007)? Q. No systematic acceleration towards HST-1 exists although collimation occurs asymptotically? Or proper motions do not correspond to the real flow speed at all?

(2011) Yes, We found final pieces of the puzzle, but how they will match into the MHD jet? The (bulk) acceleration (γ) and collimation (θ) are correlated in a parabolic streamline ( z r a, 1 <a 2 ) (Zakamska et al. 2008; Komissarov et al. 2009): γθ 1 Acceleration/collimation occurs slowly (Tchekhovskoy et al. 2008; Komissarov 2009): γ z (a 1)/a We need to determine the jet structure (a)!

17 γ-ray Flares, Superluminal Ejections, & Stationary Features in Blazars γ-ray flares occur after the ejections of superluminal jet components in EGRET blazars at pc-scale distances from the core (Jorstad et al. 2001) The γ-ray and the VLBA radio flux at 15 GHz are significantly correlated in Fermi/LAT blazars, suggesting the pc-scale radio core as likely location of flares (Kovalev et al. 2009) Fermi/LAT γ-ray blazars are more likely to have larger Doppler boosting factors (Savolainen et al. 2010) Fermi/LAT γ-ray blazars have larger apparent opening angles (Pushkarev et al. 2009) Quasi -stationary patterns in VLBI surveys (Jorstad et al. 2001, 2005; Kellermann et al. 2004); 27 sources among 42 EGRET γ-ray bright blazars indicate rather stationary hot spots than very slow flow patterns A significant global maximum in the range of projected distances shorter than 0.5 mas for 30 % of the sources in the sample Jorstad et al.
