AGN's mechanical fedback

Referente locale:

We model the interaction between relativistic jets produced near the central regions of Active Galactic Nuclei, where the Supermassive Black Holes are hosted, and the Interstellar Medium of their host galaxies where stars are formed. The mechanical and thermal energy advected by the jet can significantly modify the Star Formation Rate, either inhibiting it (negative feedback) or promoting in the more external regions, and eventually contributing to the molecular outflows observed in the high-redshift Universe.
