Driving outflows with relativistic jets and the dependence of AGN feedback efficiency on interstellar medium inhomogeneity

Wagner, Alexander; Bicknell, Geoffrey; Umemura, M

Description

We examine the detailed physics of the feedback mechanism by relativistic active galactic nucleus (AGN) jets interacting with a two-phase fractal interstellar medium (ISM) in the kpc-scale core of galaxies using 29 three-dimensional grid-based hydrodynamical simulations. The feedback efficiency, as measured by the amount of cloud dispersal generated by the jet-ISM interactions, is sensitive to the maximum size of clouds in the fractal cloud distribution but not to their volume filling factor....[Show more]
