The physical impact of radio jets

Mojtaba Raouf

Despite the importance of feedback from radio jets, to date no galaxy formation model has attempted to predict simultaneously the properties of both galaxies and AGN in detail. Our new method tracks the physical properties of radio jets in massive galaxies using the Semi-Analytic Galaxy Evolution model, including the evolution of radio lobes and their impact on the surrounding gas. Adding jet physics to SAGE adds new physical properties to the model output, which in turn allows us to make more detailed predictions for the radio AGN population. This updated model will make possible the construction of customised AGN-focused mock survey catalogues to be used for large-scale observing programs.
