This work on the Seyfert 1 AGN NGC 4051, used data from the Very Large Array (VLA) in New Mexico, USA and the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE). NGC 4051 is a favourite of my supervisor, Prof Ian McHardy and my old office mate, Dr Elme Breedt. I was looking for a correlation between the Radio and X-ray regimes at the core of this source, where the black hole is. A paper about this work has been accepted to the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society and an online copy can be found here at the online arXix, astro-ph.
