Kinematics of Gas Near the Galactic Center


The number of similarities between the nuclei of some ordinary galaxies and the quasars, radio galaxies, and Seyfert nuclei has become impressively large. Ambartsumian's recent account of the resemblances makes it hard not to believe that these energetic objects are galaxies passing through a difficult age, or perhaps suffering a not-so-rare galactic malady. And very few would deny that to understand this exceptional behavior it would be well to know how normal galaxies function in their innermost regions.
