The Link Between Extended Line Emission and AGN Feedback in Brightest Cluster Galaxies

Farage, Catherine

Description

This thesis presents a study of the optical emission-line regions of low-redshift brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs) and how these are connected to energy feedback in cluster cores. The cores of massive galaxy clusters appear to undergo cycles of self-regulating energy feedback, in which the output of nuclear activity in BCGs offsets much of the hot cluster gas cooling. Many of the BCGs in these `cool-core' clusters are surrounded by extended filamentary nebulae that produce characteristic...[Show more]
