J/ApJ/658/815       Radio loudness of active galactic nuclei (Sikora+, 2007)

Radio loudness of active galactic nuclei: observational facts and theoretical implications. Sikora M., Stawarz L., Lasota J.-P. <Astrophys. J., 658, 815-828 (2007)> =2007ApJ...658..815S
ADC_Keywords: Active gal. nuclei ; Radio sources Keywords: galaxies: jets - MHD - radiation mechanisms: non-thermal Abstract: We investigate how the total radio luminosity of AGN-powered radio sources depends on their accretion luminosity and the central black hole mass. Our studies cover about 7 orders of magnitude in accretion luminosity (expressed in Eddington units, i.e., as Eddington ratios) and the full range of AGN black hole masses. File Summary:
