Title: SPITZER MID INFRARED REVERBERATION LAG MEASUREMENTS OF SEYFERT NGC 6418
Abstract: Galaxy NGC 6418 hosts an Active Galactic Nucleus (AGN) at a distance of 122 Mpc. Today, I will present the reverberation lag measurements of mid-infrared 3.6 and 4.6 micron radiation as measured by the Spitzer space telescope from its optical B band continuum, a summary of the astronomical and statistical techniques to achieve the aforementioned results and a brief discussion of the importance of reverberation lag measurements of AGN to constrain theoretical models of dusty tori.
