Modelling the twin jet system in NGC1052

Christian Fromm, ITP, Goethe University of Frankfurt, Germany

The nearby Active Galactic Nucleus NGC1052 (z=0.005) is one of the rare sources showing two jets. The jets are launched in east-west direction and are partially blocked by an obscuring torus. We use relativistic hydrodynamic simulations to model the dynamics of the jets and compute their radiative signature. In the talk I will present our recent results and the comparison to very-long-baseline interferometric observations.
