Internal entrainment and the origin of jet-related broad-band emission in Centaurus A

Wykes, S.; Hardcastle, M. J.; Karakas, A. I.; Vink, J. S.

Description

The dimensions of Fanaroff–Riley class I jets and the stellar densities at galactic centres imply that there will be numerous interactions between the jet and stellar winds. These may give rise to the observed diffuse and ‘knotty’ structure of the jets in the X-ray, and can also mass load the jets. We performed modelling of internal entrainment from stars intercepted by Centaurus A's jet, using stellar evolution- and wind codes. From photometry and a code-synthesized population of 12 Gyr (Z =...[Show more]
