A new dynamical picture of the ISM around AGNs

In a widely accepted picture, optically thick torus plays a key role on obscuring the nucleus in Active Galactic Nuclei. However, its origin and structures have not been clearly understood. Recently we proposed a new dynamic model of the obscuring material, which is driven by the radiation from the AGN (Wada 2012). In this talk, I will review this new picture and its observational tests in multi-wavelength.
