Title: PKS2250-41 and the role of jet-cloud interactions in powerful radio galaxies
Author: Villar-Martin, Montse; Tadhunter, Clive; Morganti, Raffaella; Axon, David; Koekemoer, Anton
Abstract: We have studied the effects of the interaction between the radio jet and the ambient gas in the powerful radio galaxy PKS2250-41 (z=0.31). Our results show that the gas has been accelerated, compressed, heated and collisionally ionized by the shock. This study helps us to understand the processes which determine the observed properties of many high redshift radio galaxies. (Refer to PDF file for exact formulas).
