Irradiated Accretion Disks from Galactic Black Holes to Active Galactic Nuclei

B. Czerny, R. Goosmann, A. Janiuk

Abstract

This paper reports the status of the research on the effects of the
irradiation of accretion disks. We cover both the X-ray spectra where
the disk reflection is visible as well as the modifications of the
optical/UV disk continuum. We discuss various geometries of the
irradiation, including the photon scattering by the warm absorber and
the disk corona which may be important for illuminating disk outer
parts.
