Spectral Signatures of Jet-driven Shocks in Active Galactic Nuclei

Dopita, Michael


It is now clear that jet-driven shocks in active galaxies are responsible for an important fraction of the emission of the extended narrow-line regions (at all wavelengths). The remainder arises from photoionisation by UV photons originating at the active nucleus itself. This review examines the spectral and dynamical signatures of jet-driven shocks in these environments, and shows how these can be used to constrain the shock velocities, the parameters of the jet, the galactic or circumgalactic...[Show more]
