Superluminal Effects and Bulk Relativistic Motion

  • M. H. Cohen (a1) and S. C. Unwin (a1)

Abstract

The observational status of superluminal radio sources is reviewed, and the results for one well-studied source (3C 345) are discussed in detail. We discuss the relativistic-beam model of superluminal sources, and concentrate on one aspect, namely the geometric constraints provided by combined X-ray and proper-motion measurements.
