3D MHD simulations of radio galaxies including non-thermal electron transport

Abstract:

We report on an effort to study the connections between dynamics in simulated radio galaxy plasma flows and the properties of non-thermal electron populations carried in those flows. To do this we have introduced a new numerical scheme for electron transport that allows a much more detailed look at this problem than has been possible before. Especially when the dynamics axe fully three dimensional the flows are generally chaotic in the cocoon, and the jet itself can flail about violently. The...
