« 3D simulations of AGN jet feedback »

Salvatore Cielo

The effects of Active Galactic Nuclei in their host halos (AGN
Feedback) may play a key role in a galaxy formation context.
In particular, relativistic nuclear jets -as observed ubiquitously in
radio galaxies and galaxy clusters- provide both a reservoir of hot
gas and large amounts of energy in the form of mechanical work. It is
very important to accurately include these components in the energy
balance of their host.
I will briefly present the work developed during my late PhD on
hydrodynamical simulations of AGN jets; I will mainly focus on the
global energetics and -visually- on the most interesting aspects of
the gas kinematics developed in these systems.
