MAGN; Mildly Active Galactic Nuclei

Complexities in the kinematics have been detected in the sixties — in the nuclei of galaxies aside from those defined as Seyferts. The kinematic complexities consist of deviations from the expected circular motion, (generally referred to as not-circular motions) either outward or inward. Some galaxies like M31, NGC 253, NGC 4736 show expansion at their nuclear regions whereas others like NGC 2903, 3351, 3672, 5383 are reported to exhibit inward motions.
