By Vincenzo Antonuccio-Delogu (editor), Joseph Silk (editor)

In past times decade, convincing proof has been accrued about the influence of energetic galactic nuclei (AGN) job at the inner and exterior setting in their host galaxies. that includes contributions from well-respected researchers within the box, and bringing jointly paintings through experts in either galaxy formation and AGN, this quantity addresses a couple of key questions on AGN suggestions within the context of galaxy formation. the subjects coated comprise downsizing and star-formation time scales in titanic elliptical galaxies, the relationship among the epochs of supermassive black gap development and galaxy formation and the query of even if AGN and megastar formation coexist. Authors additionally speak about key hard computational difficulties, together with jet-interstellar/intergalactic medium interactions, and either jet- and merging-induced superstar formation. compatible for researchers and graduate scholars in astrophysics, this quantity displays the attractive and full of life discussions occurring during this rising box of study.

Example text

In order to estimate the SFR of our sources we estimate the FIR luminosity and apply the relationship found in local starburst galaxies (Kennicutt 1998). 2 mm flux or 3σ upper limit and integrating in the 8–1000 μm wavelength range. In the case of upper limits, the luminosities and SFRs are also considered upper limits. 5. The FIR luminosities range from 5 × 1012 L to 3 × 1013 L , and the corresponding SFRs from 800 to 6000 M /yr. Mm-detected AGNs and starbursts show a similar range of SFRs, independently of their MIR (6 μm) luminosity.

The equation for hydrostatic equilibrium implies a slope of −9/4 for the gas density at r = Rv . The gas density at any r (r < Rv ) is solved numerically using the equation of hydrostatic equilibrium including gas gravity. In all runs, the code evolves the shells from redshift z = 2 until z = 0. In some runs with insufficient feedback to counter cooling, the hydrodynamic timestep becomes exceedingly small. 5 cm−3 are held fixed and are not moved by the code at any later time. 1. In the column to the left we show results that include radiative cooling and no heating.
