### The Linear-Size Evolution of Classical Double Radio Sources

Abstract:

Recent investigations of how the median size of extragalactic radio sources change with redshift have produced inconsistent results. Eales compared the radio and optical properties of a bright 3C and faint 6C sample and concluded that $D\propto(1+z)^{-1.1\pm0.5}$ ($\Omega_0 = 0$), with $D$ being the median size of the radio sources at a given epoch and z the redshift. Oort, Katgert, and Windhorst, on the other hand, from a comparison of the properties of a number of radio samples, found much ...
