Title: The blazar TXS 0506+056: A source of high-energy neutrinos?
Description: The IceCube Collaboration recently announced the detection of a high-energy astrophysical neutrino from the direction of the blazar TXS 0506+056 during an energetic gamma-ray flare, and an archival “neutrino flare” from the same direction. In this talk, I will present observational evidence that TXS 0506+056 is not, as it seems, a BL Lac object. It is, instead, a powerful quasar with an accretion disk surrounded by strong radiation fields. This has implications for neutrino production in the environment of the source, which will be discussed. (11:00 AM - 11:30 AM, 940 if 902 is not availab)
