Abstract:

After a brief description of NuSTAR – a NASA hard X-ray satellite in orbit since June 13, 2012 – and of its scientific objectives and main results, I will present and discuss the activities and results of the AGN Physics Working Group. In particular, I will discuss the NuSTAR impact on our understanding of the hot corona responsibile for the main X-ray emission, on the reflection component from the accretion disc and from distant matter, and on the soft X-ray emission.
