Modeling TXS 0506+056 Neutrino Flares for AMEGO-X

TXS0506+056 has been detected twice by IceCube, once during a gamma-ray flare and once when a gamma-ray flare was not simultaneously observed. Some models have suggested that to explain both the electromagnetic and neutrino signals, two zones are required in addition to a very high energy density photon field impinging on one part of the jet. Preliminary results indicate that a single zone model can explain the multiwavelength data from both events, but requires a break in equipartition between electrons and protons. AMEGO-X is well poised to differentiate between these models through multimessenger collaboration on blazar flares.
