Radio galaxy host properties spanning three dex in radio luminosity

Abstract:

We describe a major study of radio source host galaxies being carried out with the HST and ground-based facilities. Our sample is selected from 4 complete samples with different radio flux-density limits, giving a range of three orders of magnitude in radio luminosity at a fixed epoch (z=0.5). High-resolution HST WFPC2 imaging shows that all 44 radio galaxies have flux distributions well fit by an r1/4 law and lying on the Kormendy relation defined by lower redshift ellipticals with a shift i...
