1995ApJ...454...50X A SIGNATURE OF RELATIVISTIC ELECTRON-POSITRON BEAMS IN BL LACERTAE OBJECTS G. Z. XIE, B. F. LIU, AND J. C. WANG Received 1994 April 11; accepted 1995 May 10 ABSTRACT BL Lacertae objects have been observed to vary in all wavebands on various timescales ranging from years to hours. Compton Gamma Ray Observatory (CGRO) observations have revealed intense {gamma}-ray emission from several BL Lac Objects. We show here that there is a significant correlation between the Doppler-corrected minimal X-ray luminosity and the equivalent timescale of X-ray variability extrapolated from the observed optical variability for BL Lac objects. We interpret this as evidence for relativistic electron-positron beams in BL Lac objects. Subject headings: BL Lacertae objects: general - elementary particles - galaxies: jets - radiation mechanisms: nonthermal
