英文摘要Fermi-LAT analyses show that the gamma-ray photon spectral indices Gamma(gamma) of a large sample of blazars correlate with the vF(v) peak synchrotron frequency ns according to the relation Gamma(gamma) =d-k log v(s). The same function, with different constants d and k, also describes the relationship between Gamma(gamma) and peak Compton frequency nC. This behavior is derived analytically using an equipartition blazar model with a log-parabola description of the electron energy distribution (EED). In the Thomson regime, k=k(EC)=3b/4 for external Compton (EC) processes and k=k(SSC)=9b/16for synchrotron self-Compton (SSC) processes, where b is the log-parabola width parameter of the EED. The BL Lac object Mrk 501 is fit with a synchrotron/SSC model given by the log-parabola EED, and is best fit away from equipartition. Corrections are made to the spectral-index diagrams for a low-energy power-law EED and departures from equipartition, as constrained by absolute jet power. Analytic expressions are compared with numerical values derived from self-Compton and EC scattered gamma-ray spectra from Lya broad-line region and IR target photons. The Gamma(gamma) versus ns behavior in the model depends strongly on b, with progressively and predictably weaker dependences on gamma-ray detection range, variability time, and isotropic gamma-ray luminosity. Implications for blazar unification and blazars as ultra-high energy cosmic-ray sources are discussed. Arguments by Ghisellini et al. that the jet power exceeds the accretion luminosity depend on the doubtful assumption that we are viewing at the Doppler angle.
