Contribution of gravitational redshift to spectral line profiles of AGN: the case of Lorentzian profile.
The authors analyse the influence of gravitational redshift on the spectral line profiles of homogeneous, static and optically thin region near massive AGN (Seyfert galaxies and quasars). The correction function that determines the degree of spectral line profile distorsion produced by gravitational field has been investigated.
