This range for the duration of the variations is also appropriate to investigate the possibility of detecting spikes (see Sagar et al. 1996; de Diego et al. 1998; Gopal-Krishna et al. 2000; Stalin et al. 2004a).
Testing tests on AGN microvariability
The relatively large number of spikes reported in microvariability literature (Sagar et al. 1996; de Diego et al. 1998; Gopal-Krishna et al. 2000; Stalin et al. 2004a) suggests that they may be a common phenomenon and worth of investigation using very fast and accurate photometry with large telescopes.
