Inverse-Compton ghosts and double-lobed radio sources in the X-ray sky

Abstract:

In this study we predict the total distributions of powerful (FR II) active double-lobed radio galaxies and ghost sources, and their observable distribution in the X-ray sky. We develop an analytic model for the evolution of the lobe emission at radio and X-ray energies. During jet activity, a double radio source emits synchrotron radiation in the radio and X-ray emission due to inverse-Compton (IC) upscattering by gamma~10^3 electrons of the cosmic microwave background. After the jets switch...
