Fig. 11.


Bulk Lorentz factor of the inner jet of M 87 estimated from the jet–to–counter-jet ratio vs. the distance from the central engine under the assumption of stationary viewing and changing flow speed. The solid line and the shaded region indicate the mean values and the uncertainties, respectively. The deprojected distance has been calculated based on a viewing angle of 18°.
