Interactions of a Light Hypersonic Jet with a Nonuniform Interstellar Medium

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 extragalactic radio sources. The interstellar medium in these simulations consists of a conventional hot (T ∼ 104 K) component together with a warm (T ∼ 104 K) turbulently supported disk whose local density is described by a lognormal density distribution and whose...[Show more]
