Interaction of Jets with the ISM of Radio Galaxies

Sutherland, Ralph; Bicknell, Geoffrey


We present three dimensional simulations of the interaction of a light hypersonic jet with an inhomogeneous thermal and turbulently supported disk in an elliptical galaxy. These simulations are applicable to the GPS/CSS phase of some extragalactic radio sources. We identify four generic phases in the evolution of such a jet with the interstellar medium. The first is a "flood and channel" phase, dominated by complex jet interactions with the dense cloudy medium close to the nucleus. This is...[Show more]
